Bishop Nevares, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix, Coming to St. Steven’s

Eduardo Alanis Nevares, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix, will be presenting a Morning of Recollection on Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 10 a.m. to noon, at St. Steven’s Catholic Church in Sun Lakes.

On May 11, 2010, Nevares was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix and Titular Bishop of Natchesium by Pope Benedict XVI. Nevares is the first auxiliary bishop of the Phoenix Diocese. His episcopal motto is, “Serve the Lord with gladness.”

Bishop Nevares comes from a family of six children. As his mother would leave the four older children at school, young Eduardo and his mother would attend daily Mass together. It was seeing his mother’s love and devotion for the Eucharist that began to instill in Bishop Nevares a desire to be a priest.

Auxiliary Bishop Nevares has been assigned to multiple places throughout the United States. An excellent speaker, all will enjoy his presentation and personality. A luncheon will follow. Call St. Steven’s office at 480-895-9266 for more information or to sign up.
