Catherine was such an inspiration!  I first met her while attending a retreat at Precious Blood Spiritual Center and had the pleasure of seeing her many times on subsequent visits.  She was always so positive, energetic, helpful and a pleasure to be with. She was a delightful person who truly lived her faith and inspired others.  I will miss her.  Linda Frank
