‘It’s been a blessing for us’

Hours before dozens of residents and guests gather at The Tradition Prestonwood for a Sunday celebration of Mass, Father Michael T. Barry moves about the room, quietly transitioning it from a community theater to a place of worship.

Inspired to grow in their faith

Over the last three years, María Rosalinda Cuarenta has juggled her work schedule and family dynamics with traveling around different parishes in the Diocese of Dallas to attend her weekly classes and earn a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry. At times, it was difficult and exhausting for the mother of three, but Cuarenta, who has been serving as a children’s catechist since 2017, didn’t let those challenges get in the way of her mission: becoming a better servant for the Church.
