27, Dillwyn, VAMy Faith, family & friends are some of the most important things in my life. My family has a dairy about an hour and a half from Richmond, VA. Both my folks come from farming backgrounds & always wanted one of their own. I enjoy and love this life and it is something I want to teach my children to love, or at least respect and understand a farmer's life. (No farms, no food, y'all!) I attend the Latin Mass every Sunday and Holy Day and yes, do I wear a l (lace) Mantilla. I was home schooled by my mother, who has taught all of my siblings, from K-12th grade, minus a few years in private school. I thoroughly enjoyed being home schooled & I would love to be able to teach my own children. With God's grace, I pray that will be possible someday. I love life - love to travel & have done a good deal of it in my life. - I hope to do more, but for now, that's not something I can do. I have traveled through most of the continental US & I have spent time in France - mainly in the Vendee region & it is some of the most beautiful countryside I've ever seen! Unfortunately I haven't yet been able to make it to any of the other countries in Europe, but perhaps someday, my dreams for that will come true! Henry David Thoreau said - "Do not lose hold of your dreams. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live." So I'm going to hold onto my dreams, in case someday they become a reality. Among other things my travels have taught me that even though the world is a large place, in Traditional Catholic circles it is actually quite small. Some of the things I love - Latin Mass, photography, coffee, warm weather, mountains, laughter, babies/children, soft rain on the windows, sushi, the ocean, long walks and the color blue. If you have any questions, please drop me a line! I'd love to hear from you! God Bless! For those of you interested, my personality type is INFJ. :)
47, Virginia Beach, VAHey! How you doin'? ;) Thanks for checking me out. I'll do my best to give a brief synopsis here, but the best way to get to know me is to talk to me. I am deeply devoted to The One True Catholic Faith...but, if I'm honest, I wasn't always that way and took my faith for granted in my youth. I was blessed to be born into the Catholic Church and attended school where the sisters wore habits and wielded paddles (my father encouraged the sisters to use them liberally). However, there was a rebellious desire that rose up as I approached "adulthood," i.e., what I thought was adulthood...yada, yada, yada,...by the grace of God I experienced my 'prodigal son' moment and realized my need of repentance. That was late 2000 or early 2001 and it wasn't a miraculous, total and instantaneous change, but has been a long road with many challenges. I still have a long way to go, but have come a long way from the bartending/party-like-a-rockstar/Animal House lifestyle I once embraced. In 2005, I began attending daily mass and in 2007 I found the courage to attend a traditional latin mass, which is when I really began to deepen my knowledge and understanding of, and true devotion to, The Faith. In '08 or '09, the newly assigned pastor to my parish agreed to be my spiritual director and has helped me immensely since then. I learned to serve low mass, and do so often during the week, unless a change in the mass schedule or my work schedule prevents it. I posted some pictures of the pilgrimage to Italy I accompanied my spiritual director on in 2015 where I was privileged to serve mass in many beautiful churches throughout Italy. It was truly awe-inspiring and I treasure those memories. The only thing missing was a spouse who shares my passion and enthusiasm for the Catholic Faith, culture and traditions. In 2015, the property next to my parish became available, so I seized the opportunity and now I can walk to church in a little less than 200 steps (if I take the long way). I did the best I could to find duck-blind draperies that matched the camouflage pattern wall paper, but the house could still really use a woman's touch. Can you finish taming the beast? :)
21, Newport News, VAWanna hear a Catholic joke? Joe Biden. If you don't think that's funny, I don't know if we will get along. Seriously though, I'm spontaneous and a laugh a minute, but also devout. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, and making up bad theme songs about inane things. I am willing to try to play just about anything, though I just don't seem to have any talent for sports. I am enjoyably bad at bowling. I like to watch football, but have never really gotten into baseball or basketball. I like board games and cards(terrible poker face, just terrible). I like pleanty of boring girly stuff like makeup and vintage fashion that you are sure to find mind numbing. I can't really think of anything else, which is probably a sign that I've said too much.
23, Mechanicsville, VAHello, my name is Martin. So currently I'm a college student studying physical therapy and kinesiology. I became fascinated by the fact that when I child wants to prove they are strong, they pick a weight up and throw it over head. Not only did this help me find my field, it helped me find my passion as an athlete. I believe we as people are wonderfully and terribly made. We all live individual stories given by the creator. Hopefully we leave the world a little better than we found it.
42, Charlottesville, VAMusic, Faith, and a deep desire to make the world a less harsh, less evil place define who I am and what I try to do every day. In college, I was very privileged to study Music, and I hold three degrees in that field. I specialized in Music Theory and Composition and played trombone as my primary instrument. Today, I work as a Web Developer in Charlottesville, VA and remain active in Music by singing in the choir and cantoring at St. Thomas Aquinas. I also conducted the Gregorian Chant Schola at St. Thomas for three years. I have a deep love for the beauty of traditional liturgy (both Latin and vernacular) as well as the musical treasures of the Church, and I actively campaign for their restoration in the common practice of our Catholic Life. The reality of Beauty in God's creation has preserved my faith through the roughest of times. Communicating and living that Beauty in the liturgy stands as one of the chief duties of the Church in this world. Any small thing I can do to help fulfill that duty, whether by serving myself or helping others to serve, makes me feel like I am doing something to push back against the pain and darkness with which Satan tries to saddle the world. A thing that has really helped me in my life is something St. Augustine said. He said (roughly) that in a fallen world, God does not take the evil away, but He makes the evil less. I try to partner with God to make the evil less both by my musical life and by what I do in my working life. As a web developer, I create and maintain a tool that is used by over 250 people in my company every day--for several hours a day. By paying very careful attention to simple things like the placement of buttons or the progression of an onscreen workflow, I get to make this tool something easy to use rather than something oppressive and frustrating. (In my imagination, there is a committee in Hell that comes up with small, daily annoyances like clamshell packaging and doors that look like you should pull them when you should actually push. I like to conquer those annoyances in my work so that my colleagues won't go home and kick the dog at the end of the day.) In my personal life, I tend to be a hopeless romantic--but not a boyish or cheesy one. My ideal date would be dinner, drinks, conversation, and dancing (in my case probably a bit clumsily) to the timeless melodies of the Great American Songbook. If you think you would like the same, I would love to meet you.
39, Virginia Beach, VALooking forward to the next phase in life....will be transitioning from military to civilian life soon. I'm passionate about art and cooking. I also volunteer with a few ministries at our church. I have lots of hobbies and interests, just ask. I have three small children and enjoy spending time with them...we are an active bunch- festivals, beach, parks, aquarium, shows, whatever! There have been many inspirational people that have influenced my life. To name a few: my grandmother, my high school coach, my Sunday school teacher, a former mentor and boss. All of them had incredible work ethic, overcame adversities, had strong love of God, and lived that love through how they treated others. My kids inspire me to do my best and be the best mom I can be each and every day. Each one is a precious, miraculous gift from God, and they deserve nothing less than Superwoman for a mom. I bring my 'A' game every day, and some days I may fall a little short (probably just expecting too much of myself), but I keep trying hard to do the best for them 24-7-365. Every day is a new challenge, the only easy day was yesterday! "Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some." Events that have influenced my life: birth of my children, two extended military deployments, a car accident, a specific mass on my last ship, times that I didnt succeed but tried again and reached my goals. Get to know me and I'm happy to share details of any of the above 'sea stories'.
26, Lynchburg, VAOh, how does one sum up their life in a small space, 2500 characters will barely scratch the surface of the life that I lead and that the accomplishments and hopes that I have. I come from a larger family that offered endless fun,opportunities and experiences that can be found no where else. My parents had a huge impact on how to live the Catholic life in a world where it can be quite difficult at times to do so. One of the things that they prepared me best to do is not just survive in this world but actually thrive and teach others by example. Because of this I believe that I am a very well rounded individual with all that they have taught me, plus lots of life experience working in the medical field for the last seven years. Now, a little about myself: I am a Man of God who thrives every day to not only better myself, but also those around me and those who I have to privilege serve at my job. Up to this point you may be thinking "what a stiff and boring person" but let me clear that up, I love to laugh and make others laugh also, I am the comic in the family and I do not consider my job done until I have at least got a few smiles out of everyone I meet. I have one of the best jobs in the world where I can make a positive change in people's lives on a daily basis. I work in the operating room assisting the surgeon during surgery. The things that I have seen and been able to assist on is truly amazing I thank God everyday for blessing me with this career!

47, Norfolk, VAMy name is Barbara. I was once married to a wonderful man and father who lost his way. I am the daughter of a man who also lost his way. We found him and brought him back to us. I suppose I tried to help my former husband do the same while in our marriage. Only after we dissolved our union was he able and accepting of a better path. A strong father to our children, and so I resolve to being blessed in that respect. I am only looking for one thing, a true love. Truest Love battles all misery, all sadness, all pain ... because it is the force of two loves that win. That is what I am looking for. But aren't we all.
