Imelda Richárd is the Coordinator for Prison Ministry. Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Imelda has called the Atlanta area home for the last 20 years. After leaving the corporate world to pursue a career in the culinary arts, she answered a call to serve the Hispanic community in her parish, the Cathedral of Christ the King, where she worked as the Hispanic Ministry Coordinator for 8 years before coming to the Chancery to work in the Office of Life, Dignity and Justice in 2015. Inspired by the motto SERVIAM (I will serve, in English) instilled in her by the Ursuline Sisters during her school life, Imelda spends countless hours volunteering with the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, Christmas Connections Adopt-a-Family and The Compassion Kitchen Project in her parish.
