Gilda-Jo Youngblood was born in 1953 to Mary and Joseph Del Vecchio (they truly were the basis of a Holy Catholic Family). As a child she played guitar at Our Lady of Mercy Sunday Youth Mass and loved having twelve years of Catholic education. In 1988, with the inspiration of the Queen of Peace, and the passion of some gifted Catholic ladies, she founded the Memorial Hospital Peace Corps-spiritual department of caregivers to the caregivers. Completing a certificate program in Spiritual Direction at St Thomas University, she joined the founders of St Anthony’s Pharmacy, a medical team housing medicine in the rectory of St James Church in war torn Medjugorge/Croatia. Yet in 1995, the Divine Mercy would call her in a way that would forever change her life.

Ingrid DiMolfetta was born on April 27, 1948 in Austria and when she was two years old, her family immigrated to New York. Her spiritual journey began at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church and School in Ridgewood, New York. As a young girl, she always felt the presence of Jesus in her life. She married in 1972, and the following year, Jerry and she moved to Plantation, Florida. They belong to Saint Gregory the Great Catholic Church. In 1989, they opened the Plantation Diner. She knew from the beginning that the hand of God was over that diner. Wonderful lifelong friendships developed there. There were many blessings and also a miracle which still impacts her life to this day. She believes that each one of us has been given a path to follow and sometimes that means being called to unexpected places.

Anne Tanis was born in Combree, in the region of Anjou, France, and immigrated to the US permanently in 1973. She was baptized in Combree and was confirmed in Angers, France. She has two sons, Eric and Paul. She went to Lourdes when she was a little girl and has always felt close to the Virgin Mary. She is currently a Eucharistic Minister and a choir member at Our Lady Queen of the Apostles Church in Royal Palm Beach where she worships. She has been on pilgrimages to Lourdes, Lisieux, Fatima, and Medjugorje.

We will all share together a wonderful breakfast with fellowship, praise and worship.
