Get to know our Teachers!

Every single teacher is driven by their love for the Lord to guide the younger generation to desire to learn more about their faith and gain spiritual strength to over come challenges within their life. 



Martha was called on a mission to help this catechism program and is pouring her heart to help the community build a foundation to grow as a whole. Martha strives every single day to create a heart-warming community who feels welcomed and be able to call Blessed Sacrament / St. John Bosco a home.



Hi! My name is Jennifer Mejia and I teach Confirmation at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. I am also the youth group leader along with my husband, Christian. We have 2 beautiful girls and a dog named Manchas. I first came into the Catholic Church in 2006 via the RCIA program for Catholic conversion. I have been teaching faith formation for about 3 years. I love connecting with teens and helping them to connect with Christ. It is important that they walk with Jesus in this stage of life because they make so many decisions that can affect their future. Outside of church, I work as healthcare provider at a local hospital. I love to travel, go to the beach, and watch movies. My favorite foods are pizza, Mexican food, and cheesecake!



Mi nombre es Juana Madrigal, tengo 39 años, casada hace 15 años, tengo 4 bellos hijos y vengo de la ciudad SAN Jose de Médico. Me gusta mucho ir a la playa a caminar y compartir con mi familia. Soy católica por herencia de mis padres, me gustan los principios basados en la palabra del Señor. Llevo 6 años cómo catequista en Blessed Sacrament y 5 en mi anterior parroquia. Me ha gustado y disfruto ser discípula De Dios enseñando cómo los apóstoles. Mi experiencia está en los grados de Kinder, pre comunión, primera comunión y grupos de padres.
