Fr. Gustavo Vidal is a native of Colombia. He came to the United States in 1991 to study for the priesthood for the Diocese of Salt Lake City. Fr. Gustavo attended Mt. Angel Seminary in St. Benedict, Oregon, and was ordained in June 1997. Sharing his vocational journey, Fr. Gustavo said that one priest in particular inspired him by allowing him to become a lector and teach religion in his parish. He sees himself as a missionary priest, having come from a very Catholic country to one that is not so much a Catholic country.

"When we walk without the cross, we are not disciples of the Lord." -Pope Francis
