Mary Ann Steutermann is a career educator with a B.A. in English, an M.Ed. in Secondary Education, an M.A. in School Administration, and over 20 years of experience as a Catholic high school teacher, administrator, and campus minister. She also teaches ESL Writing virtually to students in China and is a freelance writer. As a cradle Catholic, she respects Church tradition — its teachings and rituals. But she also insists that to be meaningful, religious faith must make sense in the modern world of mortgage-backed securities and medical marijuana, The Bachelor and the Big Bang, a Lexus and Alexa. This column is a place to explore Catholic thought and practice in real-life, contemporary society. Mary Ann loves Cher and the Packers, great books and movies, sleeping in on Saturdays, and a glass of Chardonnay on the deck at dusk. She has a husband of 28 years, a son in college, and a dog that sheds way too much.
