Fidel is a Guatemalan citizen of the Cakchiquel Maya ethnic group. He studied at the Catholic High School Seminary in Sololá, and at Francisco Marroquín University in Guatemala City, where he received a B.A. in Secondary Education and Philosophy. In 1984, Fidel received a scholarship from the New Ulm Dioceses of Minnesota to study at St. Paul Seminary at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he graduated with an M.Div. in 1988.

Since returning to Guatemala in 1988, Fidel worked with the San Lucas Tolimán Parish training Catechists and Delegates of the Word, as well as teacher and high school principal in his home village. 

Fidel has been working with CGEE in Guatemala since 1993, with both custom groups and our study abroad semester program for undergraduate students.
