Favorite Scripture: Ephesians 3:20
“Glory be to him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.”
I love learning new languages and speak Spanish, Italian, German and English and can also read Latin and Biblical Greek. My other hobbies include gardening, playing the guitar and piano, and fishing. I particularly enjoy working with youth and love mission trips to bring youth to help the disadvantaged. I have taken groups on numerous trips to Mexico and Haiti, as well as conducting many mission trips to serve drug addicts and the homeless in Kensington, Philadelphia
Father Daniel, what are your main apostolates within Regnum Christi?
My ministry to date includes a three-year internship in Chicago from 2006 to 2009, during which I worked in Legionary schools and ran faith-formation programs for boys. In 2016 I returned to the USA to carry out my priestly ministry in Maryland, where I served as the Assistant Chaplain to the Regnum Christi Adult Sections, and also as assistant chaplain for the ECYD youth programs. I moved to St. Peters parish in Yonkers, New York in 2018 and my duties include administering the sacraments and providing spiritual direction and pastoral counseling to the faithful. I serve the young adult and youth groups at St Peter’s.
Why do you love being a priest?
I love being so close to Jesus in the Eucharist!
