Jose Solorza is originally from El Paso, TX. His family moved to Henderson, KY for his fathers job when he was just a young boy. Jose talks about the challenges his family faced when moving, and the part his family played in helping to establish the Hispanic community at Holy Name in Henderson.
Jose shares how his faith journey began generations ago in Chihuahua, Mexico with the story of Padre Pedro de Jesús Maldonado Lucero and his great-grandfather. He recounts the amazing story of the martyrdom of Padre Maldonado and his families connection to this saint.
Jose also shares how he and his wife, Emily, who were married this past summer during the pandemic share and celebrate their faith. As a young couple, they take seriously the need to share the joy they find in their faith and in Jesus. You can be Catholic and have a good time in life! Jose talks about a video on the Diocese of El Paso's website that includes his grandmother. If you are interested in watching this short video about the Martyrs of Mexico, please click this link:
