My husband, Ed, and I are the proud parents of twin girls who currently attend Aquinas High School. We moved to La Crosse in 2012 and are members of St. Patrick Parish, where our family is involved in various ministries. I'm also a convert to the Catholic faith and remain Catholic because of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist: Jesus giving himself, body and blood, soul and divinity. What a gift to receive and to share!
