Parish Visit: Holy Spirit Catholic Church (East side of Indianapolis)

Msgr. Paul Koetter and Father Nico were very gracious in permitting me to share my witness after communion. The parishioners offered hugs, encouraging words and offers of prayer support for the ministry. We also received very generous donations from the congregation, which helps support the work of the ministry.

My special thanks to Lisa Brassie and Debbie Barras (Missionary of Mercy) for their assistance in bringing me into the parish to share my witness.

If you would like me to speak at your parish function, please contact me.

20th Anniversary Mass of Thanksgiving

Our 20th Anniversary Mass of Thanksgiving was held on November 10, 2018 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic church in Indianapolis and was a wonderful day to commemorate this milestone with family and friends.

My heart was filled with gratitude for our Board of Directors and family who assisted at the Holy Mass. We are grateful Reverend John McCaslin and Reverend Juan Valdes who were our celebrants. And to our special friends who volunteered and donated desserts, decorations, music, hospitality and photos. In addition to those who attended our joy filled celebration, we also received many gifts and cards of encouragement.

Thank you one and all, and may our merciful Lord continue to light our way well into the future!

Catholic Women's Conference: March 2018

It was another GREAT DAY at the 2018 Catholic Women’s Conference held at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. There was a delightful crowd of 650 women in attendance which far exceeded our expectations!

Lisa Brassie (who is shown on the computer monitor) volunteered to help at the booth this year and we received many new contacts for prayer support and volunteers along with hugs and words of encouragement!


Reaching Out Sunday: April 2018

Healing Hidden Hurts was invited to have a booth for REACHING OUT SUNDAY at St. Barnabas Church in Indianapolis.

The purpose is to give parishioners exposure to a variety of nonprofit organizations. I selected Divine Mercy weekend since this is a ministry of God’s mercy. St. Barnabas was beautifully decorated for the Solemn celebration and I couldn’t help taking a few pictures. Lisa Brassie volunteered to help again and we received a few new contacts, many families were away on Spring vacation.

I was grateful for the opportunity to share the ministry with the good people of St. Barnabas and hope in the future I can give my testimony, and touch hearts in a more personal way.
