Welcome to our new Associate Pastor - Fr. Ernesto
I was born on September 24, 1978 in Mexicali, Baja California. I grew up in a devoted Catholic family. By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I remember that it was me who wanted to go to the catechism at age of four, in order to know “Him”. I was always involved in my home parish: groups, choir, retreats or church activities; and right after high school I became a catechist which I used to love a lot.
While completing the first semester of medical school at the university, I received the call from God which resulted in my entry to the seminary. I completed my degree in Philosophy at the Diocesan Seminary of Mexicali. Later on, I joined the Eudist Fathers in San Diego and was sent to Mexico City, where I completed my Theology Degree. I was ordained a priest on November 14, 2008.
My first priestly mission was at St. James Parish in Solana Beach where I happily served as associate pastor for four years. The two years that followed, I was assigned to a Eudist House of Formation to accompany seminarians and also promote vocations. During this time, I was also a professor at the Diocesan Institute of San Diego. From 2014 to 2016 I completed a Master’s degree in Formation to the Priesthood and Consecrated Life at the Gregorian University in Rome.
After Rome, I served at the parish of St. John Eudes in the archdiocese of Los Angeles, for a period of two years. In 2018, I was sent to collaborate with the Eudists of France at the parish of Saint Jean Eudes en Val de Loire in the town of Cosne-Sur-Loire at the diocese of Nevers. After having lived three and a half years in France and after a process of prayer, discernment, spiritual direction and also with the approval of Bishop McElroy, I decided to return to San Diego to live a process of incardination in this diocese, where I want to continue serving Christ and his Church.
