Candidates' Bios

Angel Alvarez

Angel and his wife Val have been members at Holy Infant since 2007. Angel was born in Cuba and upon coming to the US, felt obligated to serve the US government for affording him the privilege of living in freedom. He retired from the US Army as LTC, then joined the Federal Government and served as a diplomatic member of missions to several countries, including a mission in Sarajevo as a representative of the United Nations. He retired a second time in 2014. He currently serves as a lector at Holy Infant. Angel views Holy Infant’s strength as the enthusiasm and unity of the congregation. He feels he can lend his lifetime experience of contributing to missions to support Holy Infant’s parish mission.

Joshua Fesel

Josh grew up in a Catholic family headed by parents in the Air Force, the fourth of five children. He and his wife Nicole joined Holy Infant in 2015. They both work at Duke, he as a Certified Registered Nurse Anaesthetist and she as a nurse practitioner. He has participated in several Lenten small groups at Holy Infant. Josh enjoys the close-knit feeling that parishioners at Holy Infant share with each other. He loves the music and the different small groups that we offer. He believes there will be many opportunities for us to grow as a parish as we continue to expand.
