There are times when despair seems to saturate our lives. The sudden death of a loved one, which is followed by the loss of a job on the same day as the ominous cancer diagnosis, which happened a mere three weeks after receiving the foreclosure notice on one’s house. You get the idea. All of us have bad days now and then, but for some there are those bad weeks, or months, or even years. In the midst of it all, it sure can be hard to find reason to hope, but hope we must. And that’s what we hear from Doreen Conca Engel.
Doreen Conca Engel serves as a Guidance Counselor and the Director of the Benilde Program at St. Raphael Academy in Pawtucket.
