Welcome To St. Felix Pantry

St. Felix Pantry Welcomes New President

By Manuel Casias, Vice President of Development for St. Felix Pantry 

On June 12, 2016, Deacon Steve Rangel became the new President and CEO of St. Felix Pantry in Rio Rancho, NM, for which he served as a board member for the past 2 years. He comes with a very diverse background having extensive experience in both business and religious ministry.

After 17 years of retail management, 8 years of sales and marketing management, and 2 years as a business owner, Deacon Steve Rangel spent 8 years at St. Jude Thaddeus as Director of Religious Education and property manager. He was ordained a Deacon on July 12, 2003, for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe in New Mexico assigned to St. Jude Thaddeus. He has also been assigned to serve as Deacon at San Ysidro in Corrales and the Jemez, Santa Ana, and Zia Pueblos, and is currently at St. John Vianney Church in Rio Rancho, NM. Deacon Steve is also the Associate Director of the New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops for the state of New Mexico representing the three Bishops at the State Legislature. 

From 2007 through 2016, Deacon Steve had been appointed by the Archbishop as the Director of Deacons/Formation for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. For a 5 year period from 2008 to 2013, he was also the Director of Pastoral Outreach for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for which he coordinated over 12 outreach ministries including prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, persons living with disabilities, and ministry to the poor.

As Director he became a Region XIII Representative and the Chair of the National Association of Deacon Directors.  He is a member of the International Diaconate Centre, and was selected as one of 2 Deacons from the United States to attend a private audience in June that Pope Francis had with 35 Deacons and wives representing countries around the world.

He resides in Albuquerque, NM with his wife of 38 years, Linda. He is the father of 2 daughters and recently became a grandfather.

On behalf of the entire staff, volunteers and Board of Directors we welcome Deacon Steve Rangel. “I hope to build on the success of Past-President Rev. Dr. Jack Bunting, as well as our wonderful Staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, says Deacon Steve.” Rangel added “Our focus this year will probably be improving the sustainability of our operations so more money can flow into the programs for our clients.”

St. Felix Pantry is New Mexico’s  second largest food pantry and serves New Mexico residents who find themselves in difficult times and hungry for food.
