You are invited to join us for Coffee & Conversation on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 12:00 pm in Yeazel Hall. Kate Mahoney will be our guest speaker. Bring your bagged lunch & we will provide the dessert and refreshments.


The road to becoming a Saint requires two miracles. Kate Mahoney’s recovery from multi-system organ failure when she was 14 is the first miracle attributed to Saint Marianne. Kate woke up from a coma to find her life was forever changed, in more ways than one.

A professional speaker and storyteller, Kate invites the audience to join her as she shares life before, during and after a Vatican approved miracle. 

Her always honest approach as patient, caregiver, struggling teenager, ambassador and human offers equal parts humility and hilarity. Kate relates to children and adults alike, individuals in the fields of health and care and anyone seeking to find or own their voice. Kate and Saint Marianne share a belief in compassion at all cost and dignity for all. Kate reminds us that we all have a story and that story matters.
