Yelbe Mayorga - Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Port Wentworth
Yelba Mayorga was born in Nicaragua, and is the mother of a son. She arrived to the United States seventeen years ago, when she moved to Miami, Florida in August 2000. With the trip, she packed her Catholic faith and knew she had to find a place where she could put it to the service of others. In Miami, she was a parishioner at Saint Monica where she was able to continue her spiritual growth. Five years later, she moved to Savannah, where she found Our Lady of Lourdes and quickly became an active parishioner. For 12 years she has collaborated in the formation of ministries, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, and other aspects of the liturgy. For nine years, she has coordinated the prayer group that has reached many other parishes in our diocese through active evangelizing between other prayer groups and even helping start a new one in Brunswick.
