Inspiring. Faith-building. Motivating.
Terry Modica converted to Catholicism in 1977, drawn by the Eucharist after losing faith in Christ by getting involved in the occult. She studied Church teachings in order to understand the truth. Always involved in her parishes, she gained a reputation for inspirational teaching and spiritual leadership in Adult Religious Education, prayer groups, Parish Council, Small Christian Community development, RCIA director, and a variety of other parish ministries. She has a degree in Theology, and has been certified by two lay ministry institutes.
Terry Modica became a magazine author in 1982. Her first book, Overcoming the Power of the Occult, was published in 1989.
She began writing the popular daily Good News Reflections in 1999. She has also written home study courses, WordBytes (faith-building articles), books, and countless booklets and pamphlets. She is the primary author at Catholic Digital Resources.
Terry Modica has been a guest on Catholic radio and Christian TV shows. She has taught workshops and directed retreats since 1989. See her online video courses for our Paracletia ministry.
She is Executive Director of Good New Ministries (gnm.org), which she co-founded with her husband Ralph in 1995. Vetted by her bishop, the ministry has become international, building the faith of Catholics through several websites. She is the author of the popular daily Good News Reflections (gnm.org/good-news-reflections) and has been giving courses, seminars, retreats, and workshops since 1989.
Terry works tirelessly in adult faith formation. She helps people reach a better understanding of God’s love and to apply Biblical principles and Catholic teachings to everyday life. She empowers people to evangelize by imitating Christ in the way they live, relying on the Holy Spirit, trusting in the Father’s love, becoming educated in the faith, praying well, and sharing their testimonies.
