Born in Conroe, Texas in 1990, Miguel Perez attended Texas A&M University for four and a half years pursuing an undergraduate degree in Industrial Distribution. After completing his studies he worked for Coalition for Life, the birthplace of the 40 Days for Life campaign, as a volunteer coordinator.
He discovered his call to the priesthood through several discernment events in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. After meeting several priests of the Companions of the Cross he was inspired by their witness to the Gospel.
It was during a time of adoration and worship at Queen of Peace Parish in Houston where he heard Jesus calling him to leave everything and follow him. Miguel loves playing soccer, traveling, trying new foods, and a great cup of coffee. He has a passion for spreading the love of Christ and is excited to be part of the St. Maurice family
