Carlos Salas was born & raised in Cd. Juarez, Mexico. He went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, to obtain bachelor's degree in Philosophy. During that time, he was involved at Raider Catholic Center & the Parish of St. Elizabeth both in liturgical & youth retreat ministry. It was there that he met the Dominican Friars who helped him along the way of discernment towards God's call to religious life & priesthood. The Dominican friars serving the university inspired him to enter the Order because of their lives of study, prayer, & contemplation for the preaching of the Gospel. As a Dominican, he hopes to strengthen his relationship with Christ to share this with others around him.
During his free time (when available!) he enjoys watching soccer; his favorite soccer team in Chivas (Liga MX). He enjoys watching informative videos like those in the YouTube channels Vsause & World Science Festival. Real Mexican tacos are always welcomed! And he likes (almost!) everything Microsoft. But on top of all of that, he loves Jesus, serving at the altar, & discussing with others to learn from them about Christ & His Church.
