About Patty Mazariegos, MA

Patty Mazariegos, educator and writer, holds a Master’s Degree in Catechesis from The Catholic University of America and a Master’s Degree in Matrimony and Family Studies from the University of Navarre in Spain.  An educator for more than two decades serving at the elementary, high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels, she currently serves as an instructor for the Faith Formation Program in the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis of the Archdiocese of Washington (ADW). She has extensive experience working with Family Life and Marriage Preparation & Enrichment at the Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Providence, RI. She has strong experience in developing and delivering catechetical programs.

She is the author of a family-based catechetical program that aligns with the Forming Disciples for the New Evangelization Curriculum Guide for the Archdiocese of Washington for Hispanic parents. The classes are accompanied by resources, activities, and practical ideas that are easy to do at home with parents, children, and adolescents. Each class grounds its activities on Latin American Catholic traditions that are part of the core values of the Hispanic community.

She has written more than 60 short articles about family, marriage, and children’s education for the Rhode Island Catholic (Spanish version) and El Pregonero.

Perhaps her most important work is putting this theory into practice: she enjoys spending time with her husband and seven boys, visiting interesting places, or watching them practice sports. As with most lifetime projects, her inspiration is incarnate in her closest teammates, her family.
