Born in Cuba, I have been a Jesuit
since 1980, and was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1992. Besides university teaching, I have also taught at the secondary level, been assistant director of novices, and ministered to various Hispanic communities throughout the United States and abroad. I have served as a spiritual and retreat director, formator of lay ecclesial ministers, and as a weekend assistant for various Spanish-speaking parish communities.
My current research project is a biography of Joseph P. Fitzpatrick, S.J. (1913-1995), Jesuit priest, Fordham sociologist and social activist. Fr. Fitzpatrick was instrumental in studying and organizing the pastoral response to the Puerto Rican migration to New York City.
