Deacon Charlie and Jess Echeverry – Catholic Revert and former New Age
Jess Echeverry was abused as a child and by the time she was 16, she was pregnant and homeless. After she had an abortion at 18, she fell into despair and attempted suicide. A few years later, when she met her husband, Charlie, who was raised Catholic but not really practicing, they began life together but knew that Jess needed help to heal from a lifetime of abuse. After a personal experience of the love of Jesus, Jess had to know more about Christianity in general, and Catholicism specifically. Her search forced Charlie to ask questions about the faith he’d taken for granted, and led them both on an journey of joy and forgiveness that helped them discover their true vocations in the Catholic Church.
