Amazing Love: Mari Seaberg, 17, Maria Boas, 14, and Adrian Inclan, 17, share a love for music, good times with family and friends and all things Catholic. They enjoy attending daily Mass whenever possible and spending time in silent prayer, especially in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Inclan, who plans a career in optometry, and Boas, who aspires to be a film maker, are homeschooled high schoolers. Seaberg is heading off to Franciscan University of Steubenville to study nursing.
A father’s Heart: Father Doug Lorig converted to Catholicism in 1979. Since he was already a married Episcopalian priest, the Catholic Church approved his ordination despite his marital status, making him one of the few Roman Catholic priests to be married. He has four children, fifteen grandchildren and an appreciative flock at St. Maria Goretti in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he lives with his wife, Nancy.
Generations of Love: Anne M. Belle-Oudry traded in her career in nursing for a stay-at-home mom, homeschool teaching position. She enjoys singing to her grandson, studying the Bible, reading, bicycling, hiking and photography. Born and raised in New York, Anne and her husband, Jack, now live in Arizona and are finding great joy in their new role as grandparents. They have three lovely daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law, and one amazing grandson.
A Servant’s Heart: Peter Troiano is twelve years old and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his parents, two brothers and one sister. Peter is home schooled and enjoys reading, writing, piano and endless hours of fetch with his dog, Pine. He is blessed to serve at the altar at St. Maria Goretti Church, and with the grace of God, would love to be of service to our Lord as a priest one day.
A Child’s Treasure: (Left to right) Michael Boas, Maria Boas, Derek Rebello and Elsa Schiavone are long-time friends with a great deal in common, including their love for reading, writing, music, playing with their dogs and attending daily Mass whenever possible. They are home schooled and look forward to a life dedicated to loving Jesus more each day.
