Tricia Lyngen

Campus Ministry Director

Tricia Lyngen is our Campus Ministry Director. Before joining the faculty at Saint John’s Prep, Ms. Lyngen served as a Theology Teacher at DeLaSalle High School in Minneapolis.

“Hello! My name is Tricia Lyngen and I am the IB Philosophy Instructor and Campus Minister at Saint John’s Prep. I am a 1992 alumna of the College of St. Benedict where I ran track and cross country and studied Communication, Spanish, and English courses within my Liberal Studies major. I then went to the Saint John’s School of Theology where I obtained an MA in Theology majoring in Spirituality and minoring in Systematics. I have another MA in Education from St. Mary’s University. I have a graduate certificate in English as a Second Language, and I completed my Advanced Pastoral Spanish certificate from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis with an immersion experience in San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico.

I am excited by the open-minded and open-hearted community of the Prep School, and I am thrilled to be back on campus working where I feel so welcomed and at home. I am a Benedictine Oblate through Saint Benedict’s Monastery in St. Joseph. I am also a Spiritual Director who was trained at the Spirituality Center at Saint Benedict’s.

I married to a proud Johnnie, C.J. Lyngen 1992. We were engaged at the Old Chapel and married in the Saint John’s Abbey Church. We have two College of Saint Benedict Bennie daughters, Leah CSB 2023, and Lucy CSB 2024. In my spare time I enjoy running, cooking, gardening, watching sports, reading, praying, and hiking.”
