IMG_1597I was born in Chicago, Illinois on the Feast day of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, January 4, 1966. My mother was a homemaker and dad worked the ranks in the soft drink industry before retiring as President and Chief Operating Officer of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company. He entered into eternal life in 2005. Born the fourth of seven girls and one brother, my primary vocation is wife and mother. Eric and I celebrated the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony on October 5, the Feast day of Saint Faustina Kowalska, and received a Marriage blessing at the Vatican on our 25 Wedding Anniversary in 2016. God has blessed our life with a son, Grantham Lloyd and a daughter, Shannon Noelle.

In 2012, I completed a Masters in Pastoral Theology. My pastoral project is published by Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College titled A Model for Evangelization through Sacred Art and The Rite of Dedication of an Altar.  There I describe a pastoral and theological reflection exercise on evangelization. The process lead to the commissioning of various local artists for sacred liturgical art based on the document Built of Living Stones – Art, Architecture, and Worship, guidelines of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. A DVD of the altar consecration liturgy with Timothy L. Doherty, Bishop of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana presiding, is incorporated into the book.

My ministry role at Saint Louis de Montfort Church in Fishers, Indiana in Liturgy and Art & Environment steeped a deep appreciation and gratitude for all things holy and sacred.

My prior studies include: Notre Dame Center for Liturgy summer symposium on the Eucharist; and the New Roman Missal Translation at University of Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois;  Harlaxton College, Grantham, England; and, a Bachelors degree in Communications, concentration in Radio Television from Saint Joseph’s College.

Led by Our beautiful Blessed Mother to write a book, that will unfold when she is ready is an invitation to the world in multiple languages. In the words of  Saint Teresa of Calcutta, “I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.”

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam. For the greater glory of God.

Where is your holy and sacred place?
There are many signs and symbols of that which is holy and sacred.
