Committing to the Mission
Relief Case Worker, Catholic Social Services
Alejandra Marroquin’s search for something more in her spiritual life is what led her to become an IHM Associate.
“The IHM Sisters are not afraid to get involved and pitch in. It’s their example and the way they challenge me not just to be good but to be better that draws me to their charism and mission,” she says.
Today, Alejandra, who immigrated to the U.S. from Guatemala when she was thirteen years old, continues to engage with her Latino heritage through her role as a relief case worker for Catholic Social Services. She works with Latino populations in and around Scranton, is heavily involved with her parish and serves as a member of the IHM Committee for Peace and Social Justice. She also regularly works to educate others and lead discussions on important issues such as unconscious racism.
Committed to living by the IHM Charism and Core Values, Alejandra has dedicated her life to serving others.
