Sara Piazza: Revert from Judaism

Background: / /

January 13, 2014

JonMarc Grodi welcomes Sara Piazza who shares her interesting journey to the Catholic Church, onto Judaism and then returning Home.  Sara grew up in Martha’s Vineyard.  Her father left the marriage before she was born, leaving a large hole in Sara’s heart – a significant part of her seeking wholeness.  Her mother became anti-religious.  Sara’s grandmother introduced her to the faith through a Methodist Sunday school, but by her teens, Sara had no connection to a church.  Later, her children, her love of music and her continuing faith journey took her through the Methodist and Episcopalian traditions to eventually converting to Catholicism.  It led her to a deepening spirituality, as she began to study Hebrew and subsequently becoming Jewish.  How she eventually felt called to return to the Catholic Church is the conclusion of her fascinating story.
