My name is Deacon Tom A. Perez.
I was born and raised in Albuquerque (Old Town). As the old saying goes, about a stone’s throw from our parish church San Felipe de Neri.
I have been married to my wonderful wife, Gloria, for 54 years. We have four adult children, nine grandchildren and six great- grandchildren. And what a blessing it has been for us.
I entered the Permanent Diaconate Program, January of 1973, and was ordained a Permanent Deacon May 20th, 1978. I was the first Deacon ordained for San Felipe, and it has been an incredible experience for both Gloria and me.
I currently am assigned to coordinate the ministry to the homebound and also assist our pastor with marriage prep, aside from many other duties.
