Deaconess Caitlin de Ramírez

Serving the Lord in the Dominican Republic



Deaconess Caitlin Worden de Ramírez serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a deaconess missionary in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. She works as a congregational deaconess alongside the pastors. She serves as mentor for the formation of Dominican deaconesses and works alongside the seminary in the Dominican Republic to train them on a congregational level. She also supports the work of the mercy houses in this country and seeks to strengthen the relationships between them and the congregations. She specifically works with the program Amigos de Jesus, “Friends of Jesus,” which is a disabilities outreach ministry. In addition, Caitlin supports the women and youth of missionary families in this country through emotional and spiritual care.

Caitlin’s hometown is Watervliet, Mich., and her home congregation is Salem Lutheran Church, Coloma, Mich. She received a bachelor’s degree in social work and sociology from Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant. She also received a master’s in theology degree with a deaconess certification from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. Caitlin served as an LCMS missionary in Lima, Peru, for five years before transitioning to her service in the Dominican Republic. She enjoys reading, baking and spending time with her husband Jeancarlos and their friends.


Pray for Caitlin as she serves in the Dominican Republic. She writes, “Please pray that the Lord helps us with the transition to the Dominican Republic, to face with His strength the culture shock and with His joy the hardship of leaving behind friends and family in Peru. Pray for Jeancarlos’ studies at the seminary and for my vocation working with the congregations. Pray for the congregational members here in the Dominican Republic, and for the deaconess students, that the Lord may strengthen them and lead them in their spiritual growth.” Pray also for Jeancarlos and Caitlin as they begin their married life together bonded in the love of Christ. Let us give thanks for Caitlin’s service to God’s children in the Dominican Republic.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
