Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me. - Mt 25:40

A note from Fr. Jose Aurelio – I am Fr. Jose Aurelio Ortiz Matiz, from  Colombia. I was born  October 7, 1965, and  ordained as a Vincentian priest on July 6, 2003. After my ordination I worked as a teacher in Our Lady of  Immaculate Conception Seminary in Garzon Huila,  Colombia for 18 months. Next, I worked in a parish with native people (Indians) in Tierradentro Cauca, Colombia from January 1 to May 30, 2009. On June 1, 2009, Bishop Richard  Garcia admitted me to work in the Diocese of  Monterey. I spent the first month in Castroville at Our Lady of Refuge, and then four months in King City at St. John the Baptist.  After King City, Bishop Garcia moved me back to Our Lady of Refuge for two years, and then to  St. Patrick’s Church in Arroyo Grande, where I  remained for four years and four months. Bishop  Garcia has now moved me to Sacred Heart Church. I am very happy to be here, and look forward to  working with this wonderful parish community.
