Xenia encountered Orthodoxy through a visit to Project Mexico and St. Innocent Orphanage. She is married to Herman Mongan and they have three young children.
Xenia has worked as a nanny for an Orthodox family for five years. In 2017 she began training for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at the OCA parish in Tempe, Arizona.
The Mongans currently live in Northern Arizona where they attend a Romanian parish.
Xenia will be serving the St.Emmelia West Conference this November in toddler care.
