Let His Love Shine Through What You Do - Colleen Puscas

Some 30 years ago, she was the director of liturgy and music at Christ the Teacher Parish/Newman Center at Northern Illinois University. Then her husband, Michael, had a job opportunity in Connecticut, so she and her family moved to Colchester. One Sunday morning, after moving there, the family was running late preparing their four children for church, so they ended up attending a later Mass, 11 a.m. at St. Andrew Church.

Diakonia - Prison Ministry
Prison Ministry Having been a high school religion teacher for 18 years, I was in diaconal formation when my second high school was closed and I was jobless. At a retreat for deacon candidates and lay ministers on Ender’s Island, I was mulling over where I would do my six-week ministry rotation.
