My name is Emmanuel Perez and I am very blessed to be welcomed into the Holy Trinity Parish Family as the Coordinator of Middle School and Youth Ministry! I began ministry at a young age under the guidance of Fr. Ismael as an Acolyte in the Parish of St. Mary of the Angels in the city of Ukiah where I was born and raised. After relocating to the Central Valley, I answered the call to serve the Church for a total of four years in various positions including Administrative Assistant to the Pastor, Safe Environment Coordinator, and Youth Minister at St. Jude Thaddeus Parish. During this time, I was able to learn, lead & contribute to many committees which included the Youth & Young Adult Committee for the Diocese of Fresno, CA (representing the Merced-Mariposa Vicariate).
I have received an A.A in Psychology and Theatre Arts as a Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society graduate. I am currently completing my B.A in Public Administration at Cal State Fullerton where I plan to pursue higher education. Before embarking on this new journey at Holy Trinity, I served as the Confirmation & Youth Ministry Coordinator at Santiago de Compostela Parish in Lake Forest for the past year and a half.
I am a great believer and advocate in 1 Timothy 4:12. “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.”
And like Saint Junipero Serra proclaimed “Siempre Adelante” “Always Moving Forward”…with this spirit, I look forward to serving the families of Holy Trinity as we journey together in faith.
In Christ,
Emmanuel Perez
