From Addiction to Healing-Through a Mother’s Eyes

“Be strong and courageous: do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you where ever you go” Joshua 1:9
Claudia was born in the beautiful city of Brooklyn, New York in the Polish section called Green point. Both her parents were of Polish descent and she has 4 sisters and one brother.

Claudia attended Catholic grammar school and her church, St. Cyril & Methodius which was primarily Polish speaking.She lived in Brooklyn until she married David who works for IBM. He was transferred to Chicago which was only supposed to be for 18 months. After nine years and three children;Daniel, Jessica and Benjamin, he was transferred back east, and moved to Danbury, CT, where they still live today. David was raised Methodist. They brought their children into the Catholic faith through the RCIA program. It was a beautiful Easter vigil when they were all baptized and followed Mom in her faith. Claudia has been blessed with a loving, happy home and family, but during the last couple of years her faith has been tested. Her testimony is a story of triumph. It is the story of a mother who gets her strength from God, to help herself and her son get through the dark days of the power of addiction. It is a testimony of trusting in God, not losing faith, but believing in the power of prayer and knowing that all is possible with God.

We do not assign seats so arrive early to check in at the Reservation Table and find seat(s) before the program begins.

HISTORY of Triumphant Heart of Mary Immaculate Chapter

[Diocese of Bridgeport, Ct]

The Triumphant Heart of Mary Immaculate Chapter was established in 2002 after several years of formation. It was brought to the diocese by our Spiritual Director Fr. Larry Carew who attended a Charismatic Conference and sat next to Marilyn Quirk on an airplane and felt the need to bring this ministry to our diocese. Our first Coordinator was Fran Karpiej who through her knowledge and determination established and incorporated our chapter in the Bridgeport Diocese of Fairfield County, Ct. Fran with the early team worked diligently and our first breakfast was held in 2002.  We have had some wonderful speakers Marilyn Heap, Maria Vadia, Donna Marie Cooper O’Boyle to name a few.  We give thanks to our Blessed Mother in overseeing each and every breakfast that we have held and the fruits that the breakfasts provide to everyone that attends.
