What people are saying about Joyce’s presentation:
“Joyce Coronel came to St. Joseph’s Parish to speak to approximately 65 people. Looking at their faces and seeing the tears touched my heart. Everyone was captivated. Her message with the Chaldean Church and her experience made me appreciate my parish in a deeper way. There is never a concern that I will be killed going to Mass in Phoenix, Arizona. Perhaps we take our freedom for granted. During this Year of Faith I highly recommend more parishes to open their doors to this message.”
Loretta Winn, St. Joseph Parish
“Joyce brings a message of compassion, courage and honor. Hearing the stories of our Chaldean brothers and sisters is at once heartrending and invigorating.  When I pause to reflect on the stories she shared, I am compelled to increase the urgency in my prayer.”
 Wayne Rich, President, Serra Club of Phoenix
Last month our women’s group at St. Timothy’s Parish in Mesa was privileged to hear Joyce Coronel share her remarkable journey into the heart, homes and church of the Chaldean community in Phoenix.  She has truly developed a beautiful art of presentation that held everyone spellbound as she awakened in us a desire to pray and to know more of this community. Her knowledge, humor and clarity were truly gifts that blessed all of those who heard her speak.                                                                                                                                                                                                     Carmela Hurry, St. Timothy Women’s Fellowship
