He is currently the Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, and concurrently maintains his decades-long ministry in Lima, Peru, as a priest of Cristo Redentor parish, in the poor urban district of Rimac, and as a teacher and mentor through the Bartolome de las Casas Center, a theological institute he founded for students, ministers and researchers in Peru.
