Our Faith

My boys with one of our close priest friends
We love our Catholic faith! Jesus Christ is the center of our family life. We worship Jesus at Mass where we believe that He is present Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist. We are PRACTICING Catholics, meaning we believe what the Catholic Church teaches and practice it in our daily lives. We have not used birth control in over 19 years of marriage.  Until the Obama Administration issued the HHS mandate, not using birth control wasn't something we talked about in public.  He brought the fight to us, and we aren't running away-- we'll keep talking about it until the mandate is reversed.

 I am a cooperator in Opus Dei and I believe, like the founder, that we are all called to holiness no matter our station in life. St. Josemaria is my favorite saint Opus Dei is a Catholic institution founded by Saint JosemarĂ­a Escrivá. Its mission is to spread the message that work and the circumstances of everyday life are occasions for growing closer to God, for serving others, and for improving society. We love to learn about the saints who came before us and lived up to their Christian call to holiness. Our Catholic faith is full of wonderful saints and examples of Christian holiness and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As Catholics, we promote and defend the sanctity of all human life. The Catholic Church has always been pro-life and has always promoted and defended the sanctity of all human life at every stage from conception until natural death.  In 2010, we attended the March for Life and Prayer Breakfast in Raleigh, NC (see pictures below) and in January 2011, we attended the March for Life in Washington, DC.
