Bio: will be supporting the various Hispanic parishes with their youth programs, as well as providing training, missions, retreats, and pastoral accompaniment. I come to Cincinnati from Columbia, South America, where I was a lawyer with a bachelor's degree in theology, as well as a specialization in Canon Matrimonial Law. I have been a youth group coordinator in two parishes, and have participated in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal for more than 12 years as the formation coordinator.

A Little About Me:  have been married to Nohora for 5 years and am the eldest of five siblings. I like to participate and watch sports, and visit various stadiums to attend games. I also enjoy traveling and reading books.
