Br. Ángel Diego

I was born on January 9, 1975, in Burgos, Spain. I grew up in a family of 4 (with my parents and sister). My parents instilled the faith in me from when I was a child and encouraged me to live Christian values.

At the age of 11, I entered the juniorate at Guardamar, in the former Province of Levante. I did all my formation in that Province. The closeness and affection that I saw in the Brothers helped me to grow and strengthen my Marist religious vocation, along with the support of my family. I made my first vows in Torrente on 16 July 1995.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work in different fields. In the schools of Cullera, Sanlúcar la Mayor, Badajoz and Chamberí. I also worked for some years in Torrente, in a children's centre.

In recent years I have been part of the post-novitiate community of the Provinces of Compostela and Mediterránea in Madrid, accompanying the Brothers in the first stage of post-novitiate formation.

As for my studies, I had the privilege of being able to study for a Teaching Diploma and Degree in Psychology and Religious Sciences.
