Thank you for visiting my blog. I pray that you will find something here to help you on your personal journey towards sainthood. All the church pictures on my blog were taken at St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Maple Park, Illinois. This is the parish where the foundations of my faith were solidified. These photos bring back so many memories. I was baptized in this church as an infant. I received my first communion and first reconciliation here. I was confirmed here. I learned to be a Catholic here. It truly is a walk down memory lane when I look at these pictures. I can still see my grandparents, Bud and Erma Steffes sitting in their pew on the left hand side. They are in heaven now. I miss them. I am so grateful to them for passing down this wonderful Catholic faith to our family.

I plan to keep my posts to 500 words or less so they will be a quick, easy and hopefully very fruitful read. I welcome your feedback and questions.
