Auxiliary Bishop Rodriguez was born March 22, 1955, in Merida, Mexico, located in the state of Yucatan. He was ordained Dec. 24, 1987.

He has a licentiate in philosophy and a doctorate in theology from the Gregorian University in Rome, in addition to a diploma in Mariology from the Marianum in Rome. He speaks English, Spanish, and Italian.

He was a professor and dean of the faculty of philosophy at the Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, Italy, until 1999, when he was named Associate Pastor of St. Therese Parish in Aurora, Colorado, by then Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver.

From 2007-2014, he served as Vice Rector of St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver. He was incardinated as a priest of the Archdiocese of Denver in 2008. He will continue to serve as pastor of Holy Cross Parish.

Auxiliary Bishop Rodriguez is the second Hispanic auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Denver. Archbishop José Gomez served in Denver as the auxiliary bishop from 2001-2005.

The last auxiliary bishop to serve in Denver was Bishop James Conley (ordained a bishop in 2008), who was named the bishop of the Diocese of Lincoln in 2012.

Bishop-elect Jorge Rodriguez was installed as the sixth auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Denver on Nov. 4, 2016, at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

Denver became a diocese on Aug. 16, 1887, and an archdiocese on Nov. 15, 1941. The Denver Archdiocese covers 40,000 square miles in northern Colorado and includes 25 counties. Approximately 52% of the Catholics of northern Colorado are Hispanic.
