Emily is a parishioner at Immaculate Conception in New Richmond, WI, where she was not born but raised. She developed a love for the Diocese of Superior and an ever-deepening devotion to our Blessed Mother after serving as a Totus Tuus missionary during the summer of 2018. During her spare time, she enjoys adventuring in God’s beautiful creation, birdwatching, reading historical-fiction, and illustrating portraits of her pets. Additionally, Emily is a zealous collector of quilts and is a proud Czech. Although she is mildly allergic to felines, she still snuggles her cat immediately upon every homecoming. She frequently calls upon the intercession of Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Thérèse of Lisieux (her Confirmation saint). Emily’s prayer is for all to experience the fullness of truth, goodness, and beauty in the Catholic Faith.
