Community Meal Cook: Angie Corte


Greetings!  I am Angie Corte the Community Meal Cook here at St. Benedict’s.  George, my husband of sixteen years, and I attended High School in Little Falls where we first met.  We spent most of our 20s working one, sometimes two, jobs at a time, getting a college education, and getting to know each other better while living in the Twin Cities Metro area.  We eventually settled in Montrose, MN and started a family.  We moved to Avon in 2006 and have loved this community ever since!  Our family worships at Avon Community Church.  There, George and our daughters are very involved in Music Ministry.  We have witnessed such inspiring fellowship amongst the various Christian churches here in the surrounding area and count ourselves blessed to be a part of them in our small way.  We have enjoyed getting to know many of you already, and we look forward to knowing more of you soon!  I am usually accompanied by George and our three daughters: KC (13), Dee Dee (11) and Carleigh (8) on Wednesday nights at the Community Meal.  In my free time I enjoy music, basketball, ice skating archery and gardening.
