Bio: I will be at the service of the growing Hispanic community in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, providing catechesis, sacramental prep and formation in Spanish and English. I love to share the life-giving beauty of our faith with all people but I am especially drawn to service to the poor. Hispanic Catholics suffer from a great disparity in outreach by the Church and I am utterly thrilled to be at their service. Hispanic immigrants need Christ more than anything and I want to serve that need.

A Little About Me: I am married to the Managing Director of Marriage and Family, Adriana, and we have two children: Peter Julian and Zoe Anastasia. I love to workout, read, listen to all sorts of music and follow sports. I was raised in California and went to college at Notre Dame (Go Irish). My parents are Mexican immigrants and I have two brothers and two sisters.

Favorite Saint: Our Lady of Guadalupe, Thomas Aquinas, Therese of Lisieux and John Paul II

Favorite Bible verse: "Look towards Him and be radiant," (Psalm 34:4)
