Another Guam seminarian will be ordained a priest in Miami very soon. Miami gains and Guam loses. I only copied and pasted the biography of Deacon Gomez. According to the Archdiocese of Miami website:
MIAMI | The Archdiocese of Miami will gain four new priests this Saturday, May 12, when Archbishop Thomas Wenski ordains the following men: Deacon Omar Ayubi, Deacon Gustavo Barros, Deacon Juan Alberto Gomez, and Deacon Matthew Gomez.
The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. at St. Mary Cathedral, 7525 N.W. Second Ave., Miami. It is open to the public and will be livestreamed on the Archdiocese of Miami’s website and Facebookpage.
Here are brief biographies of those to be ordained.
Deacon Gómez, 37, was born Oct. 30, 1980, in Acayucan, Veracruz, Mexico to Juan Gomez and Catalina Roman (deceased). He is the fifth of seven brothers and sisters. He graduated from high school in the Bachillerato in Acayucan, Veracruz, Mexico and earned a bachelor of arts from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He also earned a doctorate in sacred theology at Blessed Diego Luis de San Vitores, Catholic Theological Institute for Oceania, affiliated to the Pontifical Lateran University. He is completing a master’s in divinity at St. Vincent de Paul Seminary.
His home parish is St. Cecilia in Hialeah. His pastoral assignments have included service at Immaculate Conception parish in Marlborough, Diocese of Boston, Massachusetts; St. Patrick in Holyoke, Diocese of Denver, Colorado; and St. Anne, Diocese of Pueblo, Colorado.
