"Our journey started with a mutual friend recruiting me to help with "The Upper Room”. One of the many programs run by these fabulous women. And two years later I feel like I have seven lifelong friends. They are a Blessing to the students at OLG by their clear example of love for our Lord to just being present. How awesome that the students can talk with these women on a daily basis! Their stories are amazing. They are also a huge Blessing to the families of the OLG parish. From the programs they are involved in with the youth to the prayers they offer up on a daily basis for us. If you have never met them, I urge you to seek them out, have a chat, have dinner... it is a life changer. What a tremendous gift they are to us. And I feel confident in saying that anyone… young or old… that has met them would say the same. We love them!"
