Most days find Lisa Cusmano happily attending her family and those who visit her home, the place she calls Magdala House.  In addition to the personal retreats she offers, Lisa also provides spiritual direction and apostolic mentoring. She is passionate about creating experiences for women to realize the unique and particular love God has for them.

A long time member of Regnum Christi, Lisa has served the greater Cincinnati area as a leader of adult formation for nearly 15 years.  Most recently, she worked as Pastoral Associate for Adult Evangelization at her parish home, Saint Margaret of York.  Inspired to share the faith she received and the journey she discovered with Mary Magdalene, she now hosts Magdala House retreats and is working to complete her Spiritual Direction Certificate from Divine Mercy University.

Before entering fulltime ministry, Lisa worked as a statistician at Procter & Gamble and received her master’s degree in Biostatistics from University of North Carolina.  Originally from Kentucky, she is pleased to have kept her southern accent intact since moving to Ohio in the early 90s.  Lisa currently lives in Loveland, Ohio with her husband Cory and three sons, Evan, Adam and Brandon and enjoys long walks in the woods, quiet mornings, reading and good conversation.

Like Mary Magdalene the woman who loved much, Lisa looks forward to welcoming you to Magdala House.  Come away and rest awhile and discover the personal and passionate relationship that Jesus desires to share with you!
