As Priest Associate for Latino Ministries Alex brings a wealth of experience to St. Andrew's. Alex's first priestly assignment in 1969 was to a parish in San Antonio, TX, where 4,998 people out of 5,000 were Latino. Weekly, there were 15 Eucharists in Spanish and one in English. His PhD/STD dissertation, Presbyters and Chicanos: Towards Full Partnership in Liberation, was the first doctoral dissertation in Europe on Liberation Theology. Alex was also very much involved in the creation and first years of the Mexican-American Cultural Center in San Antonio. While serving as co-rector with his wife, The Rev. Nancy, from 2001-08 in Borrego Springs, CA, they introduced a Saturday afternoon Eucharist in Spanish. As Priest Associate at St. Andrew’s, Alex leads ministry among the surrounding Latino community including a bilingual worship service at 1pm on Sundays.
