We asked Weston three unusual questions to find out a little more about what makes him tick.
What is your favorite way to waste time? Taking my motorcycle out on a long ride.
What is your silliest fear? The creepy plant life at the bottom of the lake that have possible zombie arms in them.
What smell do you love the most? Coffee, because nothing ever goes wrong when you’re drinking coffee.

What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better? Any quality time with friends. I love when we get a chance to hang out, laugh, and joke around over a meal or coffee.
What would you sing at Karaoke night? Middle by Jimmy Eat World. It's a classic and I know people would sing along :)
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love seared scallops with creamy rice, roasted veggies and a glass of white wine. Dessert would be a dark chocolate molten lava cake.

Father Rene has been our chaplain since September 2020. He was born in Mexico and entered the Minor Seminary when he was only 12 years old. At the age of 21, he took a leave of absence from the Seminary to deepen his discernment and gain experience.
In 2012, he joined the Diocese of Sacramento as a Seminarian. He completed an English immersion program at California State University, Sacramento and later joined Saint Patrick Seminary for his Theological studies. After his long and faithful journey as a Seminarian, Fr. Rene was ordained as a transitional Deacon on April 22, 2017 and finally a Priest on June 2, 2018 for the Diocese of Sacramento.
His first parish assignment was at St. Joseph's Parish in Redding, California where he serves as the Parochial Vicar for two years. His second assignment was at St. Joseph's Parish in Vacaville where he currently continues to help with the Spanish ministry. Now, Fr. Rene will serve as the Parochial Vicar of St. James in Davis and the Chaplain of the Newman Catholic Center, Davis.
