I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service and forum that you provide for single Catholics.
I got engaged on February 14th, 2003 to a wonderful woman. We will marry July 26th, 2003. She is a wonderful woman of God. I truly believe that we were sent to each other by God to help each other in sanctification and ultimately, Salvation.
I did not meet Alison on St. Raphael. However, I truly believe that the people that I corresponded with and met from St. Raphael helped to form me into a better man. I learned a lot about relationships, my Catholic faith, and marriage from conversations, emails, and especially from reading the forums! All of this helped to form me for proper marriage.
I joined St. Raphael a few years ago and I truly had no clue about dating, courtship, marriage, and family life. I had always believed that God was calling me to be a priest or a monk.
In the couple of years on St. Raphael, I met wonderful men and women of the faith. I learned a ton about the Holy Church, Sacred Scripture, the Catechism, and the teachings of the Church. Meeting and reading postings of such wonderful Catholics gave me HOPE in dating!
Thank you. Thank You. Thank you.
