The Heart of a Catechist

Irma Jaime Cruz has been a catechist for over 44 years, having heard God’s call at an early age. As the Director of Religious Education at the Parish of Our Lady of the Americas in Des Moines, she oversees the largest Hispanic religious education program in the city. More than 600 students and their families are involved each year, which has led many to a deeper awareness and practice of their faith. The program has a 100% bilingual staff, which is essential for evangelization, as the Hispanic population can come to Christ in their native language. Irma walks with the people on their journey of faith, and her dedication to Christ and her deep desire to evangelize shines through everything she does and reflects in everyone she meets.
