Podcast in Spanish

Fr. Antonio Perdomo, priest at St. George the Great Martyr Orthodox Church in Pharr, TX, shares the daily scripture readings and lives of the saints.

The premier "Glorificnado" program aired on September 15, 2011.  This first AFR Spanish-language program was dedicated to Father Antonio's Father in Christ, Archbishop Dmitri of blessed memory, who translated many liturgical services and materials into Spanish, and who always encouraged Fr. Antonio to continue with this important outreach effort.

Fr. Antonio was born in the Dominican Republic and is a native Spanish speaker.  He moderates three Spanish-language Orthodox forums.  Two of these are hosted on "yahoogroups."  One, named "Hisporto" is a Spanish-language Orthodox discussion group, active since June of 2000.  Another, "LeFeOrtodoxaCristiana," began in July 2009 and rather than a discussion forum, simply shares the daily lives of saints, feasts and fasts and scriptures, as well as pertinent Orthodox news.  The third internet forum also began in 2009, and found on Facebook is called "Orthodox Spanish Language Outreach (OSLO)."  Through these venues and in other places, Fr. Perdomo has for the last two years also been sharing a series of Spanish language Orthodox Lives of Saints from translations which he spearheaded.

Since early 2002, Father Antonio has been the Pastor of St. George Orthodox Church in Pharr, located in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas right on the border with Mexico.  By the request and with the blessing of Orthodox Church in America Bishop Alejo of Mexico and former Mexican Exarchate Bishop, Archbishop Dmitri of blessed memory, Fr. Perdomo has done considerable work with Spanish-speaking people on both sides of the border as well as in other Latin American countries.
