Julia Hecton has lived in the Northern Virginia area since 1979 when her family immigrated from Nicaragua. A cradle Catholic, alumnus of Bishop O’Connell HS and graduate of GW University, she’s been a long-time parishioner of St. Ambrose Church in Annandale, VA. Julia studied business in college and was blessed in subsequent years to marry Glenn, together raise a family of four amazing children, and combine the joys of motherhood while gaining professional experience in administration, project management and accounting with different local companies in Washington, DC, Falls Church, and Alexandria, VA. Julia enjoys gardening and travelling with her family, supporting her parish, and growing in her Catholic faith. She is grateful and humbled to have been guided to this moment in time to help lead the store in its new phase. She and her faith-filled partners are overjoyed to meet all who walk through its doors and in this way be of service.

Barbara Schwartz has been blessed to work with both the founders and now her new partners, having been a staff member at the Paschal Lamb for many years prior to becoming a co-owner. What drew her to shop there was her reconversion to the Church in 1996 and a new-found thirst to learn about the faith. There, she found everything she needed. The store continues to provided her with an abundance reminders that "all shall be well" in the people she meets and works with daily. She is mom to four grown children and wife of almost forty years to a very loving and supportive husband.
