Looking for someone to speak about the women saints, prayer, or those away from the Catholic Church at your women’s group, parish, or retreat? Looking for someone to interview for your blog, newspaper, magazine, or radio or TV program on any of those topics? I’m your woman!

I love talking about the women saints and how they can inform our spiritual journeys today. I can tailor my presentation to your needs — anywhere from a full-blown weekend retreat to a 30-minute interactive discussion. I’m happy to tailor any presentation to your group’s needs.

In addition, I speak on ways to infuse your prayer life as well as how to welcome and minister to returning Catholics. The latter is a topic near and dear to my heart, as I was away from the Church for more than 30 years myself.

Please check out descriptions of my presentations, my biography and downloadable photo, and places where I've spoken. You can see my upcoming engagements below.

I’m happy to provide references and a letter of good standing from my parish.

Please contact me directly if your group includes 100 or fewer members. If you’re looking for a speaker for a larger gathering, please contact CMG Booking for requests. I’m sure we can make something work within your budget.
