I'm married to a wonderful Anglo-American man who brought us to Louisville from Mexico 11 years ago.

My daughter was 5 years old then. We came with a resident status, and four years later we became citizens of the United States. It has been a challenge, however, to blend in to our new country and into the Church.

The first time I went to an English Mass in Louisville, I did not see Latinos. The lady at the door was greeting people as they entered, and when it was my time, she just stood looking at me.
