Ana-Maria Cordoba, a benefits specialist for the Diocese of Arlington, was among the 80 people killed in a train derailment in Spain earlier this week.
According to the Catholic News Service, Cordoba was traveling with her husband, Philippe, and daughter, Christina, a rising senior at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington. Both are listed in stable condition in a Spanish hospital.
The family was on their way to see their son, who had completed a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
A church service is being held this morning in Arlington.
