A bit about Jessica…
Hey pals! My name is Jessica Martinez, and I’m the new Coordinator of Youth Ministry at Saint Paul the Apostle in Richardson, TX! I’m very excited to be a part of the Diocese of Dallas helping young souls encounter the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. I grew up in the Catholic faith, but it wasn’t until college that I developed a deep and personal relationship with Jesus, thanks to the mentorship and friendship of a wonderful FOCUS missionary. After college, I joined FOCUS and worked in the apostolate for four great years, serving in Colorado, California and finally Texas this past year. My time as a missionary was transformative, super humbling and very joy-filled! My last placement with FOCUS brought me to Richardson, and I fell in love with the North Dallas area (hence why I applied for around job here). Other fun facts: I’m a huge Marvel fan, I’m a major sanguine/extrovert, I love hiking and being in the mountains, and I’m so grateful for our beautiful Catholic faith. I’m stoked to be serving alongside you all in this Diocese, and I can’t wait to see what Jesus will do in all of our lives this year! +JMJ+
