Enrique Delgado, born December 26, 1955 in Lima, Peru is one of 12 siblings. All are professionals.

Delgado studied at the University of Lima where in 1986 he earned a Masters in Economics with a concentration on Finance and Accounting. He managed a company with 150 employees, but after several years of working he discerned a vocation to the priesthood.

Delgado decided to immigrate to the US and applied for the Archdiocese of Miami and was accepted into its seminary programs in Miami and Boynton Beach where he graduated with honors receiving both a Masters of Theology and a Masters of Divinity. Father Delgado was ordained June 29, 1996 for the Archdiocese of Miami in Lima, Peru. Miami auxiliary, Agustin Roman, was the ordaining bishop.

After being assigned as parochial vicar at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Key Biscayne from June 1996 to June 1999 and Nativity Catholic Church in Hollywood from June 1999 to April 2003, Father Delgado was appointed pastor of St. Justin Martyr Catholic Church in Key Largo, Florida in April of 2003.

In August of 2010, he was appointed pastor of St. Katherine Drexel Catholic Church in Weston, Florida where he recently completed construction of the parish’s first church building.

In December 2015, having completed his doctoral dissertation, “Building our Parish Together: An Exploration in Participatory Leadership”, Father Delgado was awarded a PhD in practical theology from St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens, Florida.

On Oct. 12, 2017, Pope Francis appointed Bishop-elect Delgado as Auxiliary Bishop of Miami.
