Shavelle grew up in Youngstown and currently lives in Canfield where she is a stay-at-home-mom with her son, Vito. As a child, Shavelle attended Mass with her grandparents at Holy Name Church. She has always longed to receive communion and really feel a sense of community with the Catholic church. Shavelle came to St. Michael’s with her boyfriend, Adam, and his mom, began to attend Mass regularly, and the opportunity to be baptized finally fell into place. The RCIA process has really given Shavelle a sense of community; she loves St. Michael’s and can’t wait to grow with her family here.
