John & I experienced Church of the Holy Angels Masses for years, when we visited from out of state with his parents, who were 8 AM regulars.
We liked both his parents, and this parish, enough to relocate in 2011! Being a wife of 30+ years and Mom to our 4 children, and now a son- and a daughter-in-law…and Grandmother of 4 little grandkids, has prepared me for almost anything. Hospice of Saint Elizabeth, and the nursing profession that I left behind there had prepared me for the next few years that I was to spend helping to care for both our aging Mothers, and to help Sister Susan with visits to some of our homebound parishioners. Participating with Christ Renews His Parish teams has been a unique witness to the power of Scripture and the Sacraments in discovering how much Christ loves us. Perhaps you and I have already met because of Renewal! Experience as a high school PTO president, leading various Scripture studies for 20 years, and serving as a Eucharistic Minister are a few other roles that have helped to prepare me to consider assisting our parish priests as a council member. Best of all, I have found a way to be in a ministry with John here at Holy Angels as core members of Couples Ministry. We keep returning to that very first step of praying for each other, and to the simple joys that being a married couple brings us!
