Trish O’Connor is the owner of Epiclesis Consulting, LLC, which provides products and services to enhance communication about issues related to a person’s sense of ultimate meaning, including editorial services, ghostwriting, writing aids, and spiritual retreats. She holds a BA from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and a Master of Divinity from Aquinas Institute in St. Louis, Missouri.
