Rosario Rodriguez is a dynamic speaker who has shared her uplifting message at universities and high schools across the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe. She was the innocent victim of a vicious crime in the streets of Los Angeles, where a rogue act of gang violence left her near death. But she beat the odds to survive – and thrive – and now inspires others to see how God ultimately brings greater good from tragedy.
Before her speaking career, Rosario has served in many different ministries, ranging from leading youth groups to teaching catechism to directing RCIA programs. She was selected as the Women’s Evangelization Director at Michigan State University and Grand Valley State University for the organization University Christian Outreach. She also lived in a mission house and served the poor as a lay missionary with the Community of St. John in Saltillo, Coahuila MX.
In Los Angeles, Rosario has worked in Hollywood for Act One, an organization training Christian writers and producers to work in the mainstream entertainment industry. She was also involved in reaching out and sharing the Catholic faith to those in the entertainment industry with The Hollywood Project. She was an organizer for 40 Days For Life, volunteered at Los Angeles Pregnancy Services and was on the core team for Catholic Underground LA.
Now Rosario is sharing her miraculous story and speaking about her journey of healing through the sacraments, finding her worth and dignity as a daughter of God, the power of prayer and the freedom of Forgiveness.
