The Most Reverend Eduardo Alanis Nevares was ordained as the first Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Phoenix on July 19, 2010, at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Avondale. He began his priesthood as a Missionary of Our Lady of La Salette on July 18, 1981, and was later incardinated into the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, in May 2007. Prior to his arrival in Phoenix he served as Vice Rector of the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, after serving as the Co-Director of Vocations in the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, from 2002 until 2008. Before serving in Tyler, he was the Pastor of St. Patrick Parish in Lufkin, Texas. For 25 years, Bishop Nevares served as a Missionary of Our Lady of La Salette before he sought incardination to the Diocese of Tyler. He grew up in a loving, devout Roman Catholic family. His parents were not rich, yet they sent all of their children to Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish School. As his mother would leave the four older children at school, they would both attend daily Mass together. It was seeing his mother’s love and devotion for the Eucharist that began to instill in Bishop Nevares a desire to be a priest.

His articles have been featured in Crisis Magazine and The Catechetical Review. Becky, a former agnostic feminist, writes and speaks on her conversion story, authentic femininity, and motherhood. She also homeschools the couple's five children and helps her color-blind husband match his ties and shirts. When they're not shuttling children to sports, stepping on Legos, or telling someone to pick up dirty socks, the couple hosts the popular radio show “The Catholic Conversation" with the Cradle and the Convert, which airs on the Phoenix Relevant Radio station AM1310 and via podcast on iTunes and Soundcloud.
