Meet Dcn. Jaime Garcia

It is an honor to be able to share with you a little bit of my life and how the Lord Jesus Christ brought me to this city of Phoenix. I was born in the city of Tijuana, MX. in one of the poorest neighborhoods where the houses were made of cardboard. I lived poverty as if I had not been poor, only my parents knew how difficult it was to live there.

I am the youngest of four in my family, all from the state of Michoacán. We lived in California and Mexico and finally, we settled in San José, CA. I like to play guitar and mandolin ... not professionally. Thank God I worked in two of the largest multicultural parishes in San José, with the Jesuits in Most Holy Trinity and in St. Maria Goretti.
