Reverend Alex Lenzo
Born and baptized in Austin, TX, my family moved to Las Cruces, NM, when I was 6, so I had the privilege of growing up in the Land of Enchantment. I left New Mexico to attend Wheaton College (IL), and from there moved to New Jersey, where I attended Princeton Seminary. During my time in seminary, I met my best friend and wife, Becca, while on internship at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Las Cruces. Also during that internship, I sensed strongly God calling me into the priesthood. After completing seminary, Becca and I moved to Philadelphia, where she was attending nursing school at U. Penn. There we stayed and worked for the past three years--Becca as a nurse, and I as a Parish Associate to Youth and a chaplain at an Episcopal middle-school. Becca and I are glad to be back in New Mexico. We love to hike, listen to folk music, and read...especially Harry Potter and theology and poetry (for me). :) I am learning to play the guitar, and would welcome any help, lessons, or advice from others who know how. I thank God to be beginning ministry as priest and rector for St. Francis.
