Professional Profile


I am associate professor at the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education (GSRRE) of Fordham University.  I have taught systematic and pastoral theology at the GSRRE since 2006.  

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.  And since 2010 I have been on the board of trustees of the Xavier Society for the Blind.
