Dear Brothers and Sisters,
With gratitude to Christ the Good Shepherd, and our Bishop, Cardinal DiNardo, it is with great joy that I share with you the news that Fr. David Angelino has been named the next Administrator (Pastor) of our parish, Saint Theresa in Sugar Land, effective July 1.
Fr. Angelino is already a friend of Saint Theresa’s, having assisting us on numerous occasions for Confessions and Masses, especially in the Extraordinary Form. Spending his childhood in Monterrey, Mexico and Kingwood, Texas, where he served at the Altar throughout High School, he attended the University of Saint Thomas in Houston for a short time before entering seminary – first at Holy Trinity Seminary in Irving, then at the North American College in Rome, earning a Licentiate in Moral Theology from the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum).
Since his ordination to the Priesthood in 2015, Fr. Angelino has served as Parochial Vicar at Saint Jerome parish in Houston, while also teaching as an adjunct professor at the UST School of Theology at the Seminary in Houston. Well-versed in English, Latin, Italian, and Spanish (among others, to a lesser degree), he also enjoys health and fitness (CrossFit), reading, and painting.
I have personally known Fr. Angelino since our time together as seminarians, and I know him to be a man of deep faith, extraordinary intelligence, and many spiritual gifts – especially an abiding love for Christ and his Church. I am delighted that he is coming to Sugar Land and am confident that the parish and school will continue to flourish under his guidance and pastoral leadership. More details will be sent as they become available, but for now, please join me in praying for and welcoming Fr. Angelino as he begins his pastorate here at Saint Theresa’s.
Our Lady, Mother of the Church, pray for us!
Saint Therese of Lisieux, pray for us!
