Mission Statement

Based on his own delinquent past, El Padrecito Ministries founder Father Masseo Gonzales has committed himself to the New Evangelization, both through indirect evangelization (affordable arts programs for disadvantaged youth) and direct evangelization (confirmation youth retreats, conferences, and more).

The ministry is based in Guadalupe, California.
