With recent growth of Paradisus Dei to more than 700 TMIY programs worldwide, the ministry welcomes two new TMIY program coordinators – Isaac Mannella and Mary Khadivi!

Isaac Mannella joined the staff of Paradisus Dei in May as a Program Coordinator. He is a graduate of Franciscan University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Management. He is native to Bedford, New Hampshire and is enjoying being in Texas. In Isaac’s short time with us he was most impacted when he attended his first TMIY session at St. Cecilia’s in Houston, TX and met a man who had been attending TMIY since the very first day 15 years ago and had only missed 4 sessions.

Mary Khadivi joined the staff of Paradisus Dei in June as a Program Coordinator. She is a graduate of Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. Following graduation, Mary spent two years mentoring college students as a missionary with Saint Paul’s Outreach. She is thrilled to work now for Paradisus Dei because she really believes in the call to fortify and nurture the family unit.
