Staff Member: Karla Melgar
I am originally from El Salvador in Central America. I have been married to my husband Roberto for 20 years. I am the mother of four children: Roberto, who will be a Freshman this fall at Rockhurst University, Josealonso, Gabriel, and Isabella, who attend St. Paul Catholic School. This is my third year serving at St. Paul. It has been a great blessing and honor to have the opportunity to serve as an instrument of support to parents in the faith formation of their children. I am dedicated to practicing the Catholic faith with an appreciation of the Catholic tradition and an awareness of its contemporary expression. I am highly committed to Catholic Education and the mission of the church. My Faith Formation training includes: Leadership in the Hispanic Ministry for New Evangelization, Archdiocese of Kansas City in KS training for Ecclesial Ministry for Youth and Adult Leaders, Advanced Formation from St. Edward's University in Austin, TX, and a Symposium on Leadership for a Comprehensive Pastoral Juvenile from The University of St. Paul, MN. I’m currently doing a Certification through Franciscan University in Ohio.
My favorite quote for 2017-18: " Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven.” (Pope Francis)
