Associate Pastor - Fr. Agustin Martinez
Fr. Agustin was born in the relatively small, north-central state of Aguascalientes, Mexico. His parents were diligent in raising their two boys and one girl in the Catholic faith.“I was born into a Catholic family,” he said. “We went to Mass every Sunday, [and] my mother was part of the catechesis and liturgical teams at the parish. We also prayed the rosary on a regular basis. I think my Catholic upbringing made it easer for me to discern and consider the possibility of my vocation to the priesthood.”
After receiving his college degree from Conception Seminary, he studied Theology for two years at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. Fr. Agustin was ordained a priest on May 28, 2016 at St. Peter's Cathedral in Kansas City, Kansas. Prince of Peace is his first assignment since being ordained.
