About Our Speaker: Kim Rodriguez-Torres

“God is love.” 1 John 4:16

Kim Rodriguez-Torres is a wife, mother, grandmother and woman of God. She has been involved in different areas of Ministry for the past 30 years. She is a Commissioned Lay Ecclesial Minister, Certified Advanced Catechist, Retreat Facilitator, Prayer Group Leader and Evangelist. Kim has worked as a Catholic School Teacher, Representative of Family Life and MOM’s Ministry.  She has assisted on the Board of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal for Orlando and the Archdiocese of Miami. Kim formerly served on the Central Service Team for Magnificat, the governing body for this World Wide International Ministry to Catholic Women.  The Magnificat Ministry was born out of the Charismatic Renewal open to the working of the Holy Spirit in sharing their love, service and good news of salvation.

Kim is the founder of “Bella’s Blanket of Blessings” a prayer blanket ministry that was started after her four-year-old niece and goddaughter; Bella, became paralyzed and was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  These prayer blankets are for the sick, suffering and anyone else who needs prayer. These blankets have gone around the world to Canada, Haiti, India, and the Dominican Republic.  They have been sent to hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters and seminaries.  Bella’s Blanket of Blessings helps promotes vocations to the priesthood through prayer and spiritual adoption of seminarians and priest.

Kim is willing to share the power of prayer, the love of God and the mission of Christ any chance she gets.  When you realize what happened on the Cross was done out of love for you it changes your life forever. God is love…and she strives to do all in love for the greater glory of God.


Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal.
Religious books and CD’s may be available at the meal.
