Greenville, Rhode Island – Members of the local media, fire fighters, police, residents and the Regnum Christi community at Mater Ecclesiae College gathered last night in Greenville, Rhode Island to remember the young Guatemalan girl killed last week in Smithfield, Rhode Island.

Daniela Heredia, age 12, died in a tragic accident when a car veered off the road and struck her while she was walking with a group of girls who were in town to attend the New England Regional ECyD convention at the college.  The group was on a shopping outing in Smithfield when the accident happened.

During an interview with WPRI Channel 12 television news, Regnum Christi consecrated woman Rene Pomarico said, “There is meaning to everything and God can bring good out of every situation no matter how difficult, how painful, how tragic.  And I think faith is what makes the difference.” To see the news report, click here.

Pomarico said that the girls attending the convention purchased a memorial wreath in honor of Heredia and will be placing it at the site where she was killed.
