Meet the Hope’s Garden Family

Laura Ercolino, Foundress & Secretary of the Bridegroom

Laura, through personal experience, has learned to use therapeutic tools integrated with her Catholic faith to engage her whole self – mind, heart, soul, and body – in the healing process. As Laura has come to know Christ the Bridegroom and experience His authentic spousal love, He has healed her physical, emotional, and psychological wounds and continues to heal her heart. She desires to share the hope of His healing and authentic love.

A personal note from Laura: Jesus is our Hope and this is His Garden. He desires the healing of every heart – man and woman – and the healing and restoring of marriages and families. I believe Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and teachings on Love and Responsibility, and the dignity of every human person, are the vessel through which Christ the Bridegroom is coming to our times as the remedy for the distortions of love and marriage that plague our world.

Father Michael Stalla, M.Div, MA, Spiritual Advisor

Father Michael Stalla is the pastor of Ss. Cosmas and Damian Parish in Twinsburg, Ohio. He was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Cleveland, Ohio in 2003. In 2009, he was sent to the diocesan mission in El Salvador where he was pastor for six years. While there, he translated Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body into Spanish in order to teach his parishioners the truth of their inherent dignity and the beauty of God’s plan for men and women.
Father Stalla has been a spiritual director for 16 years. His passion is teaching methods and prayer for discerning God’s voice from the other voices that distract us. The prompting question he asks of spiritual directees is “How are you letting the Holy Spirit drive in your life?”.

Father is grateful to be here at Hope’s Garden and is excited to share our Lord’s love and healing power with all who will be touched by this ministry.
