A Missionary Through and Through
Kimberly Boudreaux has always lived out her faith in service to the poor. As a young adult, she sold all her possessions and joined a missionary group, ministering around the world. Upon her return to the United States, Boudreaux began working in the mission fields of Louisiana. In 2005, she became the executive director of the Lafayette Catholic Service Centers. These eight centers provide food, clothing and shelter while ministering to the spiritual welfare of their guests. Tenacious in her efforts to give a voice to the voiceless, Boudreaux partners with schools, churches and civic groups to elevate awareness of the poor. Her respect for life is so profound that even those who have passed away and remained unclaimed in the local morgue received a proper funeral Mass and burial at her urging.
