Biography of Yolanda:
“I have called you by name: you are mine” (Isaiah 43:1) is a scripture verse that has been imprinted in Yolanda’s heart since a Marian Pilgrimage in 2005, in which she heard the call of Our Lady upon her life. That year, she became a Knight of the Immaculata through Saint Maximilian Kolbe Spirituality, consecrating her life to Jesus through Mary and it was also a year that would forever change her life. It was in 2006, when her “Marian” mission of serving women and priests would begin.
Since that time Yolanda has dedicated her life to teaching women of their God-given dignity, mission and beauty as daughters of God. By developing and leading classes, conferences, and creating her own studies. In 2010, Yolanda attended Johnnette Benkovic’s “Benedicta Leadership Institute for Women”.
And in 2012 was honored by Catholic Charities and the Catholic Resource Center for her work on behalf of women and priests. Yolanda has been a guest on many occasions on EWTN Radio’s “The Good Fight” with Barbara McGuigan and Guadalupe Radio with Jesse Romero where she was invited to give her testimony and speak about her work on behalf of women and priests.
Throughout the years Our Lady would send her priests to help Yolanda on her journey of healing and mission. Several priests would come into Yolanda’s life that would forever change her life by the grace of God. With the blessing of Bishop David O’Connell in 2016, Yolanda founded Beneath His Cross a group dedicated to prayer, sacrifice and reparation for our priests.
