What makes Numinous FM special are the people who share their lives with us and keep the conversation going. These are “our people” and we are blessed to work with them.

Ana and Veronica Novotny
Enkindle: Family Scripture Reflections Contributors
Veronica and Ana are the dynamic sister duo you’ve always wanted on Enkindle. At 20 and 19, they have been two peas in a pod since 2002. Studying theology and psychology respectively, they are both students at Franciscan University of Steubenville and love to make each other laugh in their free time.
Veronica is the editor-in-chief of Franciscan’s student newspaper and a contributing writer for several publications on Catholicism and human dignity. Ana has done music ministry for ten years and now serves in residence life on campus. Both sisters love VeggieTales, cookies, music, family, their Maryland hometown, and the Lord - not in that order.

Catherine and Patrick Sullivan
Married on the feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Catherine and Patrick Sullivan have always had a love for education. Catherine is a teacher and writer. After earning a master's degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame, she has spent nearly a decade teaching religion and English to middle and high school students. Patrick is a high school administrator and avid runner. Also holding a master’s degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame, his theological background continues to inform the work he does today. As parents, both Catherine and Patrick are grateful for the opportunity to receive the sacraments as well as a generously sized cup of coffee.
Chris and Linda Padgett
Hi, my name is Chris Padgett. My wife and I have been doing ministry for over 25 years. We may be flawed and a bit crazy, but we are living the greatest adventure. From high school sweethearts to parents of 9 children, following our dreams have led us to a nine sided house in CNY. In our little paradise, we have connected with the simpler life of family, faith, and very naughty farm animals. In addition, I love making people laugh, telling stories and encouraging people in the faith. In truth, I think we need something to laugh about and believe in now more than ever.
