About Our Speaker: Karen Forrey

Karen Forrey went through the RCIA program and became
Catholic at the age of 42 as a result of a “single act of kindness”
she received during the darkest days of her life. Even though
she was raised in a loving, upper middle class conservative,
Republican, Episcopalian family, she proceeded down a path
of self destruction and sin starting at age 16 that would last for
23 years. Her guardian angel was very busy! She did not start
practicing her faith until she was living in a nightmare. What was
that “single act of kindness” that changed her life forever? Truly
God is merciful and answers prayers!

Karen lives in Escondido with her Catholic husband of 14
years. She has been involved in several different ministries
at several different parishes once she became Catholic. She
was Treasurer of our Magnificat Chapter for several years and
currently is President of one of the praesidiums of the Legion of
Mary at St. Mary Church.

Come hear her inspiring story of conversion and hear about all
the beautiful gifts the Lord gave her once she became Catholic
and practiced her faith.

Individual Prayer available after the meal.
Religious books and CD’s are available at the meal.

Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions,
it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.
