FATHER TERRY BRENNAN received a B.A. from Ohio State University, and a J.D. from the American University in Washington, DC, where he worked after graduation. While doing volunteer work in Santa Fe, he fell in love with New Mexico’s fascinating history and Catholic heritage, and stayed to work as an attorney prior to being called to the priesthood. He attended seminary in Rome, and obtained a degree in Theology from the North American College. Fr. Brennan has served as pastor for eleven Native American pueblos in Northern New Mexico, for a Spanish village church, and currently for a rural parish in Northern New Mexico. He helped to establish a charter school, and a women’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation center called “Sangre de Cristo House”. Every Sunday he offers a Tridentine Latin Mass at the oldest church in the U.S., San Miguel Mission in Santa Fe. He is well known as a retreat speaker.
JUDITH FIFE MEAD will share a part of Father Brennan’s presentation, telling the story of the statue of Our Lady brought to California by Saint Junipero Serra. Judy is a Catholic wife, mother, educator, editor and author. Until God blessed her with children, she taught French at the Ursuline Academy in Dallas Texas. In recent years she has volunteered as an editor for a Catholic foundation, Tradition in Action, and has co-authored three books with the director of that foundation, Dr. Marian Horvat. Their recently published book called Discovering Our Lady of Bethlehem, relates how Our Lady of Bethlehem came twice to California over the sea; how she presided over the Missions; how she was exiled during the sad period of secularization, and how she was lovingly returned during the Mission restoration in the mid-1900s.

LLOYD AND NANCY GREENHAW are no strangers to Santa Fe. They have travelled here and to many parts of the world many times as Catholic evangelists. They have been married for 50 years and have 2 daughters, 14 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. Before founding their ministry, Lloyd represented a Fortune 500 company, where he was a Million-Dollar Club member, President of the Rep Council, on the Advisory Board to management, and Salesman of the Year. Nancy was an award-winning watercolor artist, honored in prestigious juried shows across the United States. Her work is in galleries and private collections throughout the South and Southwest. She taught watercolor classes at two Florida art schools. At the end of 1990, in response to Pope John Paul II’s “Mission of the Redeemer,” they quit their vocations to serve the Church in full time New Evangelization. Their goal is to use their unique gifts in service at the heart of the Church. They offer themselves as a resource, free of charge, to parishes, Youth Groups, and other organizations. They also write and publish a monthly newsletter, Come Home to Rome, dealing with topics of Evangelization and Catholic Apologetics, which they distribute nationally as part of their Catholic teaching outreach. In early 1995 they were invited by the Catholic Church in Cuba as part of a team who taught two schools on Evangelization in the provinces of Havana and Camaguey. In the fall of 1996, they led a team to the former U.S.S.R. where they taught schools for the Catholic Church in four of the major cities of Estonia. They are currently country coordinators for Renewal Ministries of Ann Arbor, MI and facilitate rallies and teach evangelization in Liberia, Uganda, Sudan, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Rwanda in Africa for them. Tens of thousands hear the Good News of Jesus Christ proclaimed!
Their music ministry is a family ministry. They have provided the music for numerous leaders’ conferences, and for national youth conferences throughout the USA. The music which they wrote and recorded on their albums spotlight and celebrate their Catholic Christian faith. These albums include: “Ocean of Mercy”, “Mighty Spirit”, “Cast Your Net” and “Whatever It Takes”. Their dynamic teaching on the New Evangelization, shares their exciting experiences from the mission fields, and aids many parishes to “come to life” by embracing the call to mission.
