Meet Our Shepherd

My name is Javier Guativa. I was assigned by Archbishop Listecki to be the new Shared Pastor of Saint Lucy and Saint Sebastian.  I am also a member of a religious missionary group: Community of Saint Paul.
Where is he coming from? What about his family?
I am originally from Colombia, South America. I was born in a city called Villavicencio, which is located two and a half hours to the South East of Bogota, the capital city of Colombia. I am the youngest of four and the only boy. My three sisters are married and I have eleven nieces and nephews. My parents still live in Villavicencio.
How did I decide to become a priest?
At age 16, I met two priests of the Community of St. Paul the Apostle, who impressed me with their dedication to serve those most in need. I stayed in contact with them for the next two years, and then decided to join them. I came to Wisconsin in 2006 to study at Saint Francis de Sales Seminary, and was ordained a priest in 2011.
Where am I going to live?
As I said above, I am a member of the Community of Saint Paul, and our main headquarters are here in Racine. My primary residence will be the house of my religious community in Racine, and I will commute every day to serve at the parish.
