Inspiring Stories

Luzann NoonaI give because of the Rosary
“My husband Larry and I always said a Rosary novena before each of our five children’s birth, and in the car traveling as my parents did with us. When Family Rosary relocated to North Easton, we were delighted and love having them close by not only for the Rosary, but Mass, Holy Hours, confession and the spiritual direction offered. There is much joy in this ministry and much good that is done.”

We give because of family prayer

“Holy Cross Family Ministries is an important part of our family life.  Through HCFM we have learned about the life and devotion of Father Peyton.  Father Peyton's famous words, "The Family That Prays Together Stays Together" has inspired and encouraged us in our daily life as spouses, parents, and grandparents. HCFM is a true blessing for our family as we continue to grow in our devotion and love for the Holy Family!”

Helen JacksonI give because of Father Peyton
“I had met Father Peyton as a child at his Rosary Rally in Kerala, India. The rally was held at The Leo XIII High School grounds. My uncle Lawrence was one of the organizers. The response was tremendous. Later in my life, when I came to the United States, I corresponded with Father Peyton in Albany, recalling my memories of his rally in Kerala. I have been praying for the Beatification of Father Peyton and was delighted to see that now, thanks to Our Holy Father, Father Peyton is referred to as Venerable Patrick Peyton. Praise the Good Lord and His Blessed Mother! I know the power of prayers and try to promote the praying of the Rosary daily.”

Joyce and Shelley EhrenzweigWe give to provide spiritual resources
“Shelly and I are happy to help promote Father Peyton's goal of building strong families, spiritually strong, that is. Whatever we have, including financial assets, comes from God. We are grateful that we are able to share what we have with Holy Cross Family Ministries.”
