Fr. Parra was born in Sardinata, Colombia, South America.  He grew up in Sardinata with his mother, father, and sister and attended St. Martin de Porres parish in that town.  As he went to college he began to feel something calling him towards the priesthood.  He discerned his vocation to the priesthood and began helping the poor in Colombia.  He enrolled in St. Thomas University to complete his degree in philosophy and religious education.  While at the ordination of his friend, he met Archbishop Robert Carlson who invited him to come and be a part of the priesthood in St. Louis.  He arrived in 2014, began learning English and enrolled in Kenrick.  He was ordained a priest on May 26, 2018 and this is his first assignment.   Welcome Fr. Parra!
