I met my husband of 28 years at Boston College, just one week before graduation. God always seems to answer my prayers just in time and in ways I least expect. Similarly, He led me to SoulCore. After teaching a high-intensity positive-affirmation exercise class for years, I started to consider the long-term physical strain. I prayed for a healthy sustainable way to combine gentle stretching and movement with prayer. The next day God answered. My friend was so excited to show me a SoulCore email she just received, saying “This has your name written all over it!”, yet she had no idea of my prayer just 24 hours prior! Praying the Rosary has always brought me such peace and I am thrilled that God is using me to share it with others. Especially since I was raised in a large Catholic Italian family where faith was lovingly shared. After moving to Connecticut, we were welcomed with open arms as part of the St. Aloysius Parish family. It is truly a joy to be actively involved at our parish. I thank God for all my blessings, particularly our four amazing children who teach me every day the real meaning of love.
