Padre Ángel Marrero

I am a gay Puerto Rican Lutheran priest working in the Boston area developing a new latino worshiping community.

The Rev. Ángel David Marrero-Ayala (Padre Ángel) was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico in 1988. He grew up in the town of Toa Baja, a couple miles from the capital city of San Juan and is the first fruit of the marriage between David Marrero, a construction worker, and Evelyn Ayala, a mother and a cook. The second fruit of that union is Ashley, who is engaged in studies at the University of Puerto Rico (UPR). On August, 2013, he married the love his life, Zachary Scott Roe, an interfaith leader and recent graduate from Andover Newton Theological School. They both live in Norwood, MA. Padre Ángel has a bachelor of arts in Secondary Education with a concentration in Spanish from the UPR is an ordained priest in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He is a member of Proclaim, a community of Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries, a non-profit organization that advocates for full inclusion of LGBTQ in the life of the Church. Currently, Padre Ángel serves as the developing priest of Santuario Luterano en Waltham, a new Lutheran community rooted in traditional latino spirituality. He enjoys spending his free time with close friends and family. Lately cooking Puerto Rican traditional food has become part of his most enjoyable activities, an interest that Zach is always eager for him to explore.

"Hijo, este año no podemos"

Es muy probable que cada mamá sepa de un compañero de su hijo con sus padres en paro, que están a punto del desahucio. O de hijos de familias que tienen que vivir, comer y pagar todos los gastos con los 400 euros del subsidio. Seguro que pueden comprar algunas cosas más, como si tuviéramos otro niño, y hacérselas llegar a esas familias con cariño
