Let His Love Shine Through What You Do - Colleen Puscas

Then her husband, Michael, had a job opportunity in Connecticut, so she and her family moved to Colchester.

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.
