José Alberto Idiáquez, S.J
Father Idiáquez studied theology at the University Jose Simeon Cañas (UCA), in El Salvador. At that time he had the opportunity to be a student of some of the priests killed in the UCA campus, such as Father Amando Lopez, S.J, Fr Juan Ramon Moreno, S.J. and Father Ignacio Ellacuría, S.J.. Father Idiáquez was also very close to Elba and Celina, the two women killed along with the Jesuits. During that period he worked in a parish within a deprived neighborhood ofSanSalvador, accompanying peasant populations that were refugees during the war. Father Idiáquez did an MA in Anthropology in Austin (USA), where he also worked with immigrants, and helped Dolores MissionParish in Los Angeles. Father Idiáquez was the Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus in Central America for seven years (2001-2008) and he is currently the General Vice-Chair at the Universidad Centroamericana (UCA) in Nicaragua. In his recent book he addresses the issue of migration of indigenous Panamanians moving to Costa Rica to pick coffee: Migration Ngäbe to Costa Rica and its impact on youth.
