Anna-635092, a 79-year-old widow from Meadville, Pa., is far from tech savvy, but that didn’t keep her from joining CatholicMatch last October.
She freezes when a message pops up on her monitor asking her to select an option. “I’m at a total loss!” she admits. “My game plan is – a, say a prayer; b, click on a choice; and c, remain undaunted and continue on.”
That’s how the spirited grandmother to 21 lives: celebrating her Irish heritage, cherishing her family and faith, and singing out – “loud, off key and with gusto,” she says.
Anna joined CatholicMatch “to explore and learn about this unfamiliar area of personal development.” Being a Catholic site made her more comfortable, she says. “I feel it covers the whole experience with a safety net.”
Interacting with fellow CatholicMatch members gives her faith a boost, especially “when I see the Holy Spirit working through His children.”
Her favorite feature on the site is the blog, which was launched a few weeks before she joined.
Decades ago, Anna was the stay-at-home mother of five children. Now she enjoys doing calligraphy, writing her memoir, reading biographies, watching football and, of course, spending time with her grandkids.
