My Story Continues08-20-2019Father Robert Fambrini, S.J.
After completing 12 years of Jesuit formation, I was ordained in 1979 by Bishop Francis Quinn, auxiliary of San Francisco, who ordained me and five others at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco. That summer I was here at SFX for about two weeks and it was here I celebrated my first English wedding. Does anyone know if Eli Enriquez & Denise Javinelli are still married?
My life as a Jesuit (I often describe myself as an “off-the-rack” Jesuit; unlike most Jesuits, I have no extra degrees, no additional letters after the “S.J.”) began with a perfect assignment -- as pastor to a tiny Mexican parish in Santa Ana, California, Our Lady of Guadalupe. How Spanish-speaking was it? There was only one scheduled English Mass a week!READ MORE
