Greetings of Christ!
It is a joy to share in the life of so many of our "little ones" here at All Saints. If you have a family with young children, we would love to come to know Jesus more with them in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and you are also more than welcome to the Holy Family Guild.
I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai'i, and while I really love the Islands, Jesus has graciously helped me to make it through 14 winters here in Minnesota! It was NET Ministries, based in West St. Paul, which brought me to Minnesota, where I served as a missionary, and then worked on the staff for seven years. My studies include Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Education undergraduate degrees, and graduate degrees in Education, and another in Theology. Can you tell I love to learn!?!
On the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, June 8, 2018, to my utter joy, I was consecrated as a Consecrated Virgin in the Catholic Church! Thanks be to God! When I am not spending time in Our LORD's Eucharistic presence, (we have SO many Eucharistic Adoration chapels in our Archdiocese - 43 and counting!) I love reading from the treasures of our Catholic heritage, and sharing with others the riches of our Faith. It is a joy for me to spend time with my friends, and family which often include being outside (when it is warm!), board games, and watching football.

Oh, too many to pick one... Jesus has drawn me into His tremendous love through His Holy Word time and time again. This verse has been a consistent truth: "Therefore, whoever is in Christ is a new creation, the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.“
2 Corinthians 5:17
