Something about our speaker…



Cathy Turco

Following the birth of her daughter with developmental disabilities, Cathy and her husband soon realized the importance of advocating for their child and later, equally important, to teach their son the values and attitudes towards inclusion and acceptance. Entrusted with one of God’s most precious gifts, a child with special needs, Cathy’s daughter has shaped her faith in a most beautiful and profound way.

Cathy’s passion is her family, her work and her quiet and humble relationship with Mother Mary.

Follow Cathy’s faith journey as she shares about how her encounters with people have helped her recognize God’s guiding presence in her life.

In the face of life’s many and unexpected challenges, Cathy experiences a peace that only God can give: a peace that sustains an inner calm, a peace that holds the hand of disappointment and deep sorrow, a peace that provides the strong assurance that God does create something beautiful out of the messiness of life.
