“When you teach, you learn,” says Angela Valencia , quoting Roman philosopher, Seneca. Angela is truly a life-long learner, a devout Catholic and Catechist. From the time she first received the Holy Eucharist, Angela’s heart had been on fire for the Lord. She was called to go deeper in her faith. She took advantage of all the formation offered in her parish and the Diocese. These opportunities opened doors which fueled her desire to teach and catechize children and other adults. Angela continues take on roles that allow her to create and educate the Catholic faith working with Catholic book publishers as a consultant to all Southern California Dioceses and parishes. She is a fantastic resource for the Catholic educator. We hope you will be inspired to listen to her faith story and learn more on how to grow as a child of God and as a catechist for your own community.
