  • I’m going to brag about my contact mom, Lacey. Lacey is 20 years old and has been at Maggie’s Place since August of 2014, when she was just a few months pregnant and unsure of what she wanted to do other than move in to Maggie’s Place. She plans to continue living at the house […]

  • A few months ago, way back in February actually, I made plans to come home and booked my April flight for a week-long vacation. I was very excited and looking forward to the visit. One of my friends was becoming a priest and another was getting married! Little did I know then, that our MissionCorps […]

  • G. K. Chesterton, in his book Orthodoxy, talks about repetition of events in Creation as a theatrical encore. “God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon​’” because God never tires of making new days!

  • “7:00 AM? Really? OK…we can do that, I guess.” The moms had voted an early morning time to open their Christmas presents at the Zechariah House.  I knew the MissionCorps would have a late night Christmas Eve. We went to midnight Mass and still had “elf-work” to do afterward. On top of all this, I […]

  • Things get very difficult in our homes at times. Lately there has been particular suffering in the homes back to back, and all the homes seem to be going through these struggles the last couple of months.

  • When I try to explain to someone exactly what I do, I often can’t find the words and many of the descriptions I attempt to give fall flat.  Being a corps member at a Maggie’s Place home is a strange and wonderful occupation to have.  Your Monday can feel like it’s lasted for a week, and […]
