St. John’s Announces Fr. Marco Durazo as New Rector

July 12, 2018


We are pleased to announce that Archbishop Jose H. Gomez has appointed Fr. Marco A. Durazo as our new rector.

Fr. Marco is a familiar and friendly face on our campus and a dedicated source of education and spiritual guidance for our seminarians.  He has been our assistant professor of moral theology for the past three years.

An alumnus of our seminary and a native of Mexico, Fr. Marco was ordained to the priesthood in 2007.  He served as an associate pastor of Santa Clara Church in Oxnard.

He assumed his rector responsibilities on July 1, as we bid farewell to Bishop Marc V. Trudeau, who is the new auxiliary bishop for the San Pedro Pastoral Region in our Archdiocese.  We are honored that Bishop Trudeau will continue as a member of our faculty.
