Rafael Morales

IX Puerto Rico

My academic background and work experiences within the church and at a professional level have provided me with valuable resources in the area of organizational management and pastoral life development. The application of knowledge and experience in the life of the Church has allowed me to develop a pastoral and managerial style that seeks to ensure the harmonious welfare of human and financial resources to expand the mission of the Church. The Diocese of Puerto Rico, which I have been shepherding for the past three years, has faced various natural and social disasters. When these have occurred, the Church has always been present and has taken action for the benefit of those most in need. The formation of a diverse team was key to leading an effective response. These experiences would allow me to present through the Diocesan Council a strong voice of social action and diverse action responses for our Church and for our society.
