Mary and Matthew met while serving with the Colorado Vincentian Volunteers in Denver, Colorado. A full-time volunteer program, the couple lived with eight others in an intentional community, sharing in faith, discussion, and service. During the reception, Matthew told a story of how he set out to climb a mountain outside Denver. He took a long, arduous route and after several hours finally reached the top where he collapsed exhausted, lay on the ground to catch his breath, closed his eyes … and then heard a voice. “Matthew?” the voice whispered. Was it God speaking to him? Matthew opened his eyes and a face was staring down at him. It was Mary.
