Ramiro's Biography

I am son of migrant parents from Mexico who came to the United States in 1976 to work temporarily during the potato season in Boise. After that, they migrated to Florida to pick citrus fruit like oranges, tangerines and grapefruit.

A couple of years later, I was born in Florida, after which we relocated to the state of Michoacan, Mexico. There, I attended elementary school, middle school and high school. 

I returned to the United States at age 15 and married. I worked for my first few years back in the States in Florida, packing houses, landscaping, and working at a juice company and on golf clubs.

In October 2003, I responded to my call to serve God through a parish group called the John XXIII Movement. From that moment, I started to give to others what God has given me through service, leading spiritual retreats in Connecticut, New York, Georgia, Delaware, Tennessee and New Jersey. I also led missions to Puerto Rico and Colombia. 

I spent eight years as diocesan leader of the John XXIII Movement in 11 parishes of the diocese of Palm Beach, Florida, organizing additional spiritual retreats. I have also served in Christian formation for adults, leadership workshops and retreats for couples preparing to get married. 

My other volunteer services include post-Communion class catechism teaching and RCIA leadership.

I have been married for 22 years to my lovely wife, Elvia. We have two wonderful children: Maria, 19, and Diego, 12.
