Greetings, my name is Martín de Jesús Martínez and I live and work in San Antonio Tx. I was born and raised here in the southside of San Antonio.

My roots are in Guanajuato Mexico, from where my grandparents (paternal and maternal) immigrated. I am presently part of the pastoral team at the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) where I give pastoral workshops on faith, culture, and leadership.

I am married with four children. I also play the squeezebox for a local Conjunto group called “Los Padrinos“. I also direct two choirs at my parish (English and Spanish). 

I am a product of Catholic education: St. James the Apostle School, St. Anthony High School, St. Edward’s University in Austin, and St. Mary’s University in San Antonio.

All posts are my own personal thoughts and opinions, and do not reflect any official position from MACC, my parish, or even my family!  You can email me at
