FAQ Page

What does Cor Sanctum mean?
Cor Sanctum is latin for Sacred Heart, which is one of the titles for Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

How did Cor Sanctum meet?
We met in a small log cabin somewhere in Iowa. It was in the middle of a snow storm. Stephen, Jen and Gregg had been on vacation when the snow became too heavy too drive in. Of course, Greggg being a guy, had driven longer than he should have and was not able to see the road signs clearly as the snow coming down had severely hampered visibility and had become quite slippery. They got off on an unmarked side-road and stopped at the first lighted structure they could get to. By some great coincidence, Joy had been driving home after visiting relatives in northern Iowa. She frequently stopped at this particular cabin when passing through the area for a short rest and to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We still find it amazing recalling how we "bumped into" David. He is quite a character. He had recently custom-built an ultra-light with special extra-large fuel tanks for an associate of his. He wanted to be sure it was safe and reliable so he decided to give it a good trial run. He could hardly wait to try it out. The first 100-200 miles went wonderfully. He did several landings and take-offs to be sure the frame was strong. He was having so much fun he hadn't realized, that since the sun had gone down, the strong winds he had been struggling against, contained snow in them. He then chose the wise thing and looked for a safe place to land and wait for the storm to pass over. The place he chose was, as you would guess, the same cabin we were at. The storm lasted several more hours. In that time many games of Hearts, Spades and Gin Rummy had been played and many stories shared. It turned out to be the beginning of who we are as a group today. *
