Jessica Hernandez

Jessica loves going to concerts, musicals, all types of shows, and going to the movies, A LOT. She still believes in snail mail and loves writing letters, especially because it’s how most of the saints communicated in the past. (Oh and also, She LOVES ALL THE SAINTS.) She is currently blessed to serve as the Coordinator of Hispanic Youth & Young Adult Ministry for the Diocese of Des Moines in the great state of Iowa.
