McCoy and Nicole McDonough were happily married this past
September 25th at Immaculate Conception Church in Lonsdale
MN. The Wedding was a grand celebration with family and friends.
The couple had a wonderful time on their honeymoon in Ireland.
Now Bill and Nicole are expecting a wee one in the middle
of august. Bill works for a internet marketing company. The
McCoy's live in Faribault MN.
and Elizabeth (Stephens) ('05) Traugott received an
early Christmas present this year. Gianna Rose was born on
Dec 7. Even after an ambulance ride from the birthing center
to the hospital and an emergency C-section, she is a beautiful,
healthy baby. Her big brother, Hugh- 1 1/2- enjoys cuddling
with her in his bed.
Weber ('03) married Jeanne Zepeda on November 13, 2010
at St. John the Baptist in Front Royal, VA. They traveled
to Rome, Italy, Paris, France, Alsace, France/Germany, and
ended in good old North Dakota for a wonderful Thanksgiving
with family and a midwest wedding reception! For now they
are living in Front Royal.
Christopher Smith, ('99), has traded in the beaches of
Hilton Head, South Carolina for the mountains of northern
Spain. In September he began his work towards a doctorate
in dogmatic theology at the University of Navarre in Pamplona.
Under Juan Luis Lorda, he is writing his dissertation on De
Lubac and the supernatural debate in the 1940s.
and Katy (Jenkins) Hochschild ('05) have had their
third boy. Ambrose Steven Vincent was born October 27th, 2010,
weighing 10 lbs. 4 oz. It was an (accidentally) unassisted
home birth that went beautifully. The proud father did the
catching, and would be happy never to do it again. Ambrose's
brothers love him devotedly, and are mostly very gentle.
Michelle (Dawson) Charba ('88): Our family did a first this
. We all piled into the suburban with John's old
"Hillbilly" hunting trailer attached, and headed
to Texas for a wedding and harvest. We drove for three days
and spent the nights in WalMart parking lots. There's nothing
like traveling in the South during the summer in a camper
with no air conditioning and no potty! It was worth it though
to spend time with family. We have had big changes this year
with both Therese and Marilyn off at college. Therese worked
during the summer to complete CNA classes and get her certification.
Then she spent two weeks in Rome with a handful of her college
classmates. She will graduate with a B.A. in May and then
plans to get her R.N. and pursue a nursing career. Marilyn
worked very hard last year and saved enough money to attend
Christendom College this fall. Michelle was able to fly out
to Christendom with her in August after not being to the campus
in 22 years! Marilyn had quite an adjustment from working
full time to being a full time student, but she loves being
there and is learning so much. Much to our surprise, she even
played powder puff football and had a blast! David spent several
weeks during the summer helping out his grandfather at the
farm in Texas. He was able to work alongside a couple of his
cousins and they had a great time. Michelle keeps busy homeschooling
Katrina, Anya and Halyna and Josef. John had a very successful
hunting season and got his largest buck to date. He and David
went with two other fathers and sons, so it was a very nice
group. That's a quick up-date of our family. God bless everyone
and have a wonderful 2011!
('08) and Amber (Meza) Massett ('03)
would like to announce the birth of their daughter, Lucy Marie
Massett, born August 19th 2010. She weighed 7Ibs. 15 ounces
and absolutely perfect! After 5 1/2 years of praying for this
miracle they are thrilled to be blessed with this precious
gift. Thank you God!
and Kateri Ambrow were married on October 16th, 2010 at St.
James in Falls Church, VA.
