“We wish therefore and prescribe, that all observe the law of the Church, and that at home or in the church they shall always wear the cassock, which is proper to the clergy. When they go out for duty or relaxation or on a journey, they may use a shorter [coat] which is to be black in color, and which reaches to the knees, so as to distinguish it from the dress of the laity. They should reject the more elegant and worldly styles of garments, which are found today. We enjoin upon our priests as a matter of strict precept that, both at home and abroad, and whether they are residing in their own diocese or outside of it, they shall wear the Roman collar.”
— Third Plenary Council of Baltimore (1884)

84277 ver0 ERONICA MORENO was born and raised in southern California to parents of Mexican heritage who raised her and her siblings with a pious faith. Having spent every other summer in central Mexico visiting her grandparents, her earliest musical influences included traditional mariachi music.

After parochial school, she attended UCLA and earned an undergraduate degree in Ethnomusicology. During this time she began working with newborns and infants who had severe special needs. This inspired her to study special education at Cal State LA, earning her graduate degree and credential. She taught pre-school students with autism before deciding to become a homeschooling mom.

Veronica is a long-time cantor at her local parish. As a young adult, she was introduced to the rich musical traditions of the Catholic Church, and now strives to bring that ethos into her service to the Church.

Veronica is married to a high school teacher and homeschools her five young children. She is proud of her vocation as a mother and teacher, and works tirelessly to create a learning atmosphere at home. She enjoys reading Jane Austen novels, watching period dramas, and drinking iced coffee.
