Lourdes Garza
Diocese of Knoxville, Tennessee

Sharing Christ with Her Motherly Love

Lourdes Garza is the director of Hispanic Ministry for the Diocese of Knoxville, Tennessee. But the title “director” is a bit of a misnomer—to this Hispanic community (which has grown more than 161% in the past decade!), Garza is known as a loving mother to all she serves. Her warm welcome to newcomers provides the invitation they need to become involved in their parishes. Her faith formation classes help Hispanic Catholics of all ages embrace their faith and cultural traditions in this predominantly Protestant region. From prison ministry to youth programming and so much more, the community is blessed with her tireless ministry. Most of all, Garza is known for her luminous faith.
