One Tuesday in October 2008, Terrence was recruited to lead the Bible Study class at the parish hall. Sister Pauline, who had taught the class for years, would be away for two weeks on a much needed rest. She had called Elizabeth and asked her to "give him a warm welcome." The following Wednesday, dear Sister Pauline suddenly went home to Jesus.
Elizabeth and Terrence had their first "warm welcome" date over breakfast. They discovered they had many things in common. During the next few months, at small and large gatherings, they enjoyed getting to know each others' families. They solemnized their engagement on February 11, at the Immaculata church on the campus of San Diego University.
On June 24, 2009 the 11 months widowed Terrence Halloran and the 6 years widowed Elizabeth Ferdig became husband and wife. They were united in the Sacrament of Marriage during Wednesday morning Mass at their parish church in Beaumont, among the friends they have made who regularly attend this Mass. The celebrant was their friend and retired pastor Father John Domas.
Elizabeth's sister and brother-in-law were the matron of honor and best man. After the brief ceremony, Elizabeth and Terrence enjoyed a lovely breakfast with them and Father Domas at the Mission Inn in Riverside.
