Brian and I married on a rainy day in July 1991.
We have a farm in central Massachusetts and we have started a family life apostolate – a ministry to families, clergy, and children from difficult backgrounds. Our mission is to educate and inspire families to create for themselves a lifestyle rooted in faith and centered around each other.
