Amy and her husband have fun together cooking and eating local, restoring their 19th Century inner-city home, traveling, hiking, and running marathons in different cities all across the U.S. She has a master’s of strategic public relations degree from George Washington University, a bachelor’s degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA and is Accredited in Public Relations (APR) through the Public Relations Society of America.
Answering the Call:
Each of us is called to announce to the world “by word and action, the message of Christ” (Apostolicam Actuositatem, Vatican II) yet so many people do not truly know and understand what is Christ’s message. As lay people, we are uniquely qualified to bring souls to Christ in the Catholic Church by sharing our own faith with our friends, families, and social media followers. Writing for the St. Paul Evangelization Society gives Amy an opportunity to answer the call by using modern communications tools to connect and share the Gospel with others right where they are.
“Therefore, we ought to support such persons, so that we may be co-workers in the truth.” 3 John 8
Amy got to meet Pope Benedict XVI and kiss his ring on her honeymoon in Rome in 2007!
