Religious Affiliation: Catholic
Home Church - I have two!! Here in New Jersey, I attend church at St. Andrew's Church in Avenel, New Jersey. However, I have a home church in Baltimore since I visit my friends down there frequently (and I was considering a move down there earlier this year) - Trinity Assembly of God, in Lutherville, Maryland.
My Journey With Christ: While raised Catholic (Catholic School, church every Sunday, etc.) I did not know the Lord until my freshman year of college at YCP. One of the girls on my floor and I had noticed that the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship had this really cool way of advertising - sidewalk chalk. Intrigued, we went to a meeting, and our lives changed. Since that one night in Fall 1996, I have never looked back. It was wonderful to find supportive, loving people in a God-loving community, people who cared about you, prayed for you and with you, and just loved you with the Lord's love.
I've found that my closer relationship with God since college has enhanced and augmented my Catholic faith, rather than draw me away from it. I get so much more out of the Sunday services that I ever did before. It was due to seeing my faith not as "faith in a box" that I take out on Sunday, but a faith I live 24/7/365
Looking forward to meeting everyone here. Feel free to friend me and I will return the favor. Have a good week - and to those in this community who live in Florida and who were affected by Charley's wrath, my prayers are with you.
