Elena Guevara, 81-years-old, has been a catechist for over 30 years. At the age of 50 and with her children now grown up, she took on a new challenge that has proved very fruitful. “It has been one of my most beautiful experiences in life,” Elena says. “Helping to form and receive a new child of God in the Church.”
Catechesis of adults, one by one
Elena was born into a Christian home, and when she formed her own family she tried to instill the faith and its values in her own children. At the beginning of the 90s she met Opus Dei and began receiving a stronger Christian formation herself, which gave her the foundation for what God would ask of her: to teach adults, one by one, who wanted to start out on the path of the Catholic faith.
