A Message from Donna-Marie

“Donna-Marie has visited my previous parish a number of times. She has a keen way of helping people, especially Catholic women, live family life and the practical details of our Catholic Faith within the daily circumstances of each day. Donna’s writing and talks are clear, practical and inviting. Her clear teaching is essential for the challenging times that we live in. I highly recommend her books and talks.” ~Fr. James Farfaglia, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe parish, Corpus Christi, TX, Author of”My Sunday Homily”

“Donna-Marie is a captivating and inspirational speaker who recently gave inspiring presentations to “Our Lady’s Guild” at our parish. Her calm and insightful style made us more aware of how close we can be to Christ in this life and how we can lead a life of holiness. The response from Guild members was so overwhelming that we immediately invited her back for another presentation.”~Margaret Doran, President of Our Lady’s Guild, St. Aloysius Parish, New Canaan, CT
