Meet Marney Costello

Marney and Rick have been married for 31 years (in May 2023) and have five children, Michael , Joey, Emma, Faith, and Malina.

Marney began her career with Progressive Insurance but ultimately decided to stay home and raise her young children.  As a stay-at-home mother, Marney heeded the call to homeschool in 2010 and is currently enrolled at Divine Mercy University where she is pursuing a certification in Spiritual Direction.

As a family (and Legatus members), the Costello’s have been privileged and forever impacted by visits to Chalco with their daughters. What began as a “side trip” on their Guadalupe pilgrimage quickly became a highlight of the trip.

Marney and Rick are humbled to be considered advisors to the Sisters and have tremendous respect for Fr. Al, the organization, and their dedication to the poorest of the poor.
