Juan Diego Barrantes Villavicencio

Hi! I’m Juan Diego, an international student from Peru, and, just recently answered the call to become a First Year Missionary!

Where I serve

I will be serving at the University of Arizona, Tucson. They have a great Newman Center that needs lots of help and prayers taking care of the many students and especially reaching out to even more!

My Story

Born in Peru but grew up living in other countries like Australia, Italy, and Brazil. Since a young age, I’ve been very close to Our Lady, I’ve prayed her rosary daily since the age of 15 and she has blessed me tremendously and brought me closer and closer to her Son! I now wish to obey her wishes for me to become a missionary and serve the youth as she has served me during mine!

Your Impact

With your help, I will be able to dedicate myself to this mission full-time and fully devote myself to the care of the souls the lord will deliver into my care. These students need to learn how they deserve to be loved and how they ought to love!

As a thank you for your support, I will offer a daily Holy hour, Mass, and a full rosary for you!
