Father Saturnino Lajo was born in Valladolid, Spain, and at the tender age of 17, he answered the call of God and professed his first religious vows. Over the years, the Oblate missionary service has taken Fr. Lajo to numerous regions of Spain, Mexico, and the United States, although he has touched countless lives and souls across the world thanks to his multiple radio transmissions, television shows, and the publishing of several books throughout his life.
Beyond being an honest and caring priest, Fr. Lajo has also played the role of a great leader, as the Oblate Director of Oblate Missions and the Adjunct Director of Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto, which have allowed Oblate Missions and Oblate brothers throughout the world to carry their noble mission to the poorest and most abandoned of the globe.
