A Socially Distanced Mass

It’s been about two months since our family has been able to attend public Mass at our parish. While I am thankful that we were able to “attend” many virtual Masses during these quarantine weeks, I must say that I am not necessarily sad to see this whole virtual Mass go. Virtual Mass with two…

Reluctant Prayer Hands

Every night before dinner, our family says the Grace Before Meals prayer. Our two boys have caught on pretty quickly.

My Conversion Story

This year’s Holy Week and Easter mark my 7th year as entering into the Catholic Church. SEVEN years! That just seems crazy to me! I’ve had quite a few inquiries about my personal journey with Catholicism and sharing my conversion story has been on my heart for quite some time now…so I thought this would…
