Speaking Testimonials

"While listening to Mary Grace's talk, I could easily see what an impact  she was having on the audience.  She had their rapt attention.  I just want to say how wonderful Mary Grace's presentation was and how many people came up to me afterwards to say they just loved hearing her; she was very, very inspiring.  Also, I just started reading her book and can't put it down; I love it!  I thank her so much for sharing her most inspiring experience with us."
Liz McAdams: The International Foundation of Survival Research
Lagona Woods, California

"Mary Grace is truly a prophet in our time.  Following the path of the ancient prophet school formation, she has listened for the voice of God, heard that voice, and delivered the spiritual message to others.  Mary's presentations are honest, clear and relevant.  I have also benefited greatly from her workshops." 
 Father Jack McGinnis: Retired Catholic Priest
 Palm Desert, California  

"I had the opportunity and pleasure to hear two talks given by Mary Grace.  Both events were very successful; attendees were transfixed, just as I was.  Mary Grace speaks about a fascinating topic to many, probably even more so for those who are Catholic and live the dilemma Mary Grace addresses.  I found her knowlegde, her ability to connect and communicate so effectively, and the topics of such interest, that I sent her information to a handful of group facilitators I know, with my hearty recommendation for a future speaker."  
Robin Barr: International Association of Near-Death Studies
 Orange County, California

 "Mary Grace presents a compelling case for the Catholic Church and other institutions to accept the reality of after-death communication (ADC) experiences and  their healing ability as a normal and natural part of human life."
Bill Guggenheim: Coauthor of the International Bestseller,
Hello From Heaven!

   "Mary Grace gave a very inspirational talk at our Universalist Church Conference last year.  Many commented about how much they learned from her and that it was well presented and very inspiring.  It was a great learning experience for all of us.  I recieved one of the early copies of her book and could not put it down.  Many sections I have read more than once."  
Chester Perkins: Universalist Church Conference;
Syracuse, New York  

Mary Grace's message is really important, not only to the Catholic community, but for the global community.  What she has to say from a theological point of view is being supported by the scientific community, especially the professionals in the field of Quantum Physics.  
Friar Justin Belitz: The Hermitage; Indianapolis, Indiana

  • Group discussion and Q & A on the Supernatural

 The Communion of Saints:
       Where Spiritualism Meets Catholicism

Catholics have always had a relationship with the saints.  At the same time, we are taught that spirit communication is forbidden.  This contradiction in church teachings results in a huge dilemma for the faithful, resulting in fear and confusion.  If we can talk to God and the saints in heaven, then why can't we talk to grandma in heaven?  Come learn how Catholics can talk with their deceased loved ones.  Subjects include:
  • Pray for us: A love affair with the Saints 
  • Parapsychology 101: The science of spiritualism 
  • How science supports Catholic beliefs
  • Participate in a Mass-like ceremony that includes songs and rituals
  • Saint Circle: Be led on a guided meditation to reunite with a loved one in heaven

        (A three-hour workshop)

 Mystics, Mediums & Muggles:
Parapsychology & Christian Theology
Why is it that many religions consider mystics to be "good" people, while mediums are considered "bad"; they both possess paranormal abilities?  What is a "muggle" and how do we use our ESP in everyday life?  Through the study of science, religion, and the supernatural, learn all about these three unique groups to better understand your own supernatural abilities and experiences. 
Learn about:

  • Parapsychology and psychic phenomena.
  • Telepathy, ESP, Clairvoyance, Visions & Spiritual Gifts.
  • Wizards vs Muggles (The Harry Potter Connection)
  • Mystical, Metaphysical, and Physical Reality
  • How the paranormal applies to your life
  • Students will test their level of ESP (Extra Sensory Perception).

        (A four-hour workshop)

*Muggles are people who do not actively use their ESP and do not believe they have psychic ability.  A term borrowed from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.
