Noëlle and Tom have a passion for telling the stories of the men and women, places and events, that built and shaped the Catholic faith in the United States.

But the importance of knowing this history may not be obvious to all.

Noëlle and Tom will put together a program or talk that can help your group come to appreciate better the lessons we can and should take from those who went before.

And they’ll do it with their characteristic wit, humor, and directness. Remember: there are no outtakes in real life!

You probably have no idea how much of an impact Catholics have had on our nation, and on New England. We dived into this topic in a very well-received talk after the 4 p.m. Mass.
