Donna-Marie Cooper O’ Boyle is a frequent guest on EWTN television and radio. She is also the TV host of EWTN’s “Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms” and “Catholic Mom’s Café” and “Feeding Your Family’s Soul,” as well as a regular contributor to a wide range of newspapers, magazines, TV and online media outlets worldwide, interviewing everyone from Cardinals and fashion moguls to movie stars.
“The absolute essence of my work is to inspire, to teach, to encourage, and to help others discover their God-given gifts,” says the Connecticut-based mother of five. Her 10-year close bond with St. Teresa of Calcutta(detailed in her National Press Women award-winning book Mother Teresa and Me: Ten Years of Friendship) has imbued her with an approach that profoundly resonates with many dimensions of society, chiefly because of the attitude of service, humility and self-respect that she promotes in all of her work.
Following in the footsteps of St. Teresa of Calcuta, Donna-Marie founded a branch of the lay Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa’s Order) and is passionate about encouraging others to follow in Mother Teresa’s footsteps, caring for the poorest of the poor. Donna-Marie also created and heads “Friends of Veronica,” an outreach to the seniors, the sick, and the lonely in nursing homes and hospitals.
In addition to her vocation as a mother, Donna-Marie has been a Catechist for over 25 years at her parish and an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharistic to the sick and to her parish.
