about The TASTE Program!





TASTE is fabulous, and I really think this program would be welcomed anywhere in the US and even abroad. You've done a wonderful job, and I'm sure you are answering God's call for your purpose. Fortunately, we get to benefit from your efforts, and there will be a ripple effect to all those we live with and come in contact with. God bless you.


The other day my husband said to me "Gee Hon, since you joined TASTE I feel like my faith has really become much stronger."


By their fruits you will know them. Matt. 7:16 Only good things have come from this program. Praying for priests, teaching others about our Faith and how to spread it, raising holy children, learning what the Church really teaches, the importance of the sacraments, daily Eucharist, frequent Confession, the sacredness of marriage are all being infused into us each and every Thursday. We are truly blessed to live so close to a program like this. It's worth the drive.


I love TASTE but was busy one week and missed. The following week my kids were sick so I missed it again. My child came up to me and asked me "When are we going back to TASTE?" I promised him next Thursday but I had no food in the house and needed to go grocery shopping. He threw himself on the ground and began sobbing "but you promised mommy" We packed up and went that morning. I was so glad I did. The speaker spoke right to my heart. What a wonderful program.


My husband and I were seriously thinking of calling it quits and wanting out of our marriage. Thank you for waking me and consequently my husband up to the fact that marriage is a sacrament and is sacred. We are still working on our marriage but not even considering divorce. God is good!
