Press Kit

SoulCore is a Catholic fitness apostolate focused on the integration of soul and body. During the month of May, a month that Catholics for centuries have set aside to honor Mary, SoulCore will host its annual Movement for Mary Challenge. Participants are asked to commit to 30 minutes of movement per day and pray at least one decade of the rosary per day.  A donation-based event, Movement for Mary contributes 100% of the funds collected to SoulCore Giving, the non-profit arm of the SoulCore apostolate that provides scholarships for individuals to be certified as SoulCore Leaders and opportunities for more parishes, schools and organizations to encounter the SoulCore experience.

Meet The Founders

Colleen Scariano

Colleen grew up in a lively Irish Catholic family where faith was the cornerstone. Personal tragedy led Colleen to a deeper conversion in faith and discovery of the beauty and healing power of the rosary. Athletics had been a part of her life since she was young, but as an adult struggled to commit to an exercise routine. Through integrating the rosary with physical movement she found a sustainable path to nourish her body, mind & soul. Now her desire is to share it with everyone. She is an inspirational speaker and leads retreats throughout the United States. Her favorite role though, is that of wife & mother!

Deanne Miller

Deanne is wife to Mike and mother to four young adult children. Raised in a large Greek family, she converted to Catholicism from a Greek Orthodox background. Deanne underwent personal suffering during her teenage years, and the integration of prayer and movement played a crucial role in her healing journey. This experience led to her lifelong commitment to honoring God in both body and soul. Deanne is passionate about helping others appreciate the gift of their bodies and guiding them in their spiritual walk. She shares her personal testimony and leads retreats globally, emphasizing the transforming power of the rosary.
