Introduction Marianna is the monthly columnist for “Secrets of the Catholic City,” published by Catholic Family News. The founding publisher of The Catholic Family’s Magnificat Magazine, she also became the first home education editor of Sursum Corda (later merged with Latin Mass magazine). Her contributors included Fr. John Hardon, S.J. (now Servant of God), Dr. Mary Kay Clark, Laura Berquist, and many others. An occasional contributor to papers like “The Wanderer” and speaker at Catholic homeschooling conferences, Marianna is the author of Fatima: The Signs and Secrets; Guadalupe: Secrets of the Image: Keeping It Catholic Home Education Guides, The Return of the King Study Guide, The Age of Mary Study Guides, and editor of The Divine Parables Explained (digital reprint) and of The Keepsake Collection. The driving force behind three Catholic support groups (local, state, and national), Marianna also gained valuable online experience as the Homeschooling Forum Moderator for CRNET (now EWTN Online, where many of her magazine’s articles are archived). In 1996, Marianna founded KIC – the Keeping It Catholic Faith, Family and Home Education Network.
