Spanish Speakers:

1. Padre Rafael Chavez

Birthplace: Barquisimeto, Lara, Venezuela
Ordination: July 3, 1993
Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Barquisimeto, Lara, Venezuela

Present ministry: Parochial vicar, St. Peter Martyr of Verona, Pittsburg

Past service: Archdiocese of Barquisimeto, Venezuela: Pastor, Parish Sagrada Familia (Sacred Family) (S. Francisco) Church; Parish of Santa Rosa - Sanctuary of the Divina Pastora. Ecclesiastic Tribunal Notary. Advisor: Pastoral Care of Vocations; Pastoral Care of Catechist; Charismatic Renewal.

When I was a young man I never thought of becoming a priest. I was a musician and I wanted to become a doctor. After attending a Catholic Charismatic Renewal, I felt the calling through God's grace realizing who Jesus was and what he wanted of me. I played my music to serve Him and used my teachings to heal torn hearts.

I have worked 25 years in pastoral work in three parishes, two in my native country, torn by communism where I lost almost my life fighting for the right to live in freedom and defending the youth of my parish who were unjustly arrested. Being a priest means giving my life for my friends, for my parishioners, regardless of the consequences. I lived among the poorest people of my country and I felt very blessed to serve them. Every Eucharist was a celebration and a sacrifice of the life of Christ and my own life. These were the happiest years of my life, as well as my present.
