Dear Parents, High School Youth & Young Adults,
My name is Daniel R. Barrón and I am the Director of High School Confirmation & Young Adult Ministries. I have been married for 21 years to Gina and we have five children and one baby on the way! Their ages range from 19 to 9.
My wife and I graduated from Auburn University and four of our children attend Catholic School. I worked at EWTN for a few years and taught CCD/Confirmation classes while I was in college. My wife and I assisted in the development and fundraising events for the first Catholic Crisis Pregnancy Center in Birmingham, Alabama, and I have traveled to Europe and Mexico for religious pilgrimages. I have three brothers and two sisters and more than half of my extended family lives in Mexico.
I love being here at Our Lady of Guadalupe and being able to teach and share our faith while helping young people grow. It is a very fulfilling responsibility in which I along with all OLG Parish Staff and volunteers take very seriously.
My favorite saints are all of them but especially St. John Paul II, St. Padre Pio, St. Mother Theresa and hopefully soon – Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Parents and High School Teens, come see me anytime. Let’s keep learning and living our faith and in the words of St. John Paul II, “Be not afraid!” Let us continue to spread the love and forgiveness of being Christ-like to everyone we know!
Yours in Christ,
Daniel R. Barrón
