Meet Your Officiant, Rev. Ann Cruz

I began my career in the wedding industry in 1998, when I became a wedding planner and relationship counselor.  I fell in love with helping people plan their weddings, and received a lot of personal satisfaction from counseling couples in building healthy relationships with one another.  After five years of planning and counseling couples, I became ordained as a nondenominational Christian minister.  I am legally recognized to perform wedding ceremonies in Michigan and all other states. I believe that dedication to serving others is most important in leading a successful life.  I am the founder of  "Midwest Marriage Outreach", a program that helps disadvantaged couples get married and stay married despite turbulent life circumstances.

My undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies were earned at Saint Mary's College at Notre Dame in 1992.  My M.A. studies were done at California State University and the Trinity Institute.  I have done extensive research in the Neuropsychology of Addiction.  Regarding my Spiritual training, I was mentored in my ministerial role by noted social activist and minister, Rev. Albert Gay, founder of Sons of the City Ministry in Gary, Indiana. My studies in the field of European and Asian Theurgical Practices are ongoing, as I enjoy them immensely.  My interests have led to travel worldwide; I have visited the Vatican in Rome numerous times, as well as other significant religious sites within Italy.  I have also visited the Mayan Ruins at Tulum, overlooking the ocean on the beautiful Yucatan peninsula. 

While I love to travel abroad, my personal path is to focus on helping people in the United States of America...St. Luke Seminary graciously conferred upon me a Doctorate of Divinity (Honoris Causa) for my "faith in action" as a volunteer counselor with disadvantaged youth and families in the United States. I am currently a member of the Council for a Drug Free LaGrange County, and a presenter of Methamphetamine Prevention and Educational seminars for Youth, Parents, Schools, and Law Enforcement.
