Since I am a widow, we have a handful of co-leaders. Lee and Denise Katona, husband and wife, and Richard Solak. Richard's girlfriend, Michelle Krzic and her son, Zack are members, too. John Dobrzenieki is single. Grace Klebe and Nick Stanziale are both widowed. Jennifer Bosley and Jayson Rogers are both single. Jennifer has a one year old baby named Lisa from her husband from a prior marriage. Kathy and Jeff Minor are married with adult children. John and Carrie Cales are married with five boys but the two eldest have to be with their real father on the weekends. So, it's just the younger three, Seth, Sammy, and Johnny who come to Community. Our meetings are the first and third Saturdays of the month starting at 6 pm. Everyone in our Community are very active at Church so we see each other all the time. Everyone of the men knows the other through the Men's Renewal program. Everyone of the women have been to one of the Womens' Renewals. Many are in Choir together. A couple are in the guitar group. A couple are on the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Everyone knows Grace as she is the parish secretary. Everyone but one gal has been to the Life in the Spirit Seminar. A handful see each other at morning Mass everyday. Denise and Jeff are our music ministry, and lead us in praise and worship. Our meetings begin with all reciting our daily renewal of the family covenant to The Sacred Heart. Each meeting, one member shares their knowledge of a favorite saint or patron saint with the others. While one of the 12 P.M. teachings is being given to the adults, a different adult spends time with our young people. They may learn a craft or a Chaplet -- whatever the adult wants to teach them. We spend time sharing "miracles" or "Godcidences" and intercessory prayer. We also truly enjoy our time of fellowship. We have some very talented hands in the kitchen (Richard Solak and John Cales).
