Aires Patulot

speaker | musician | missionary

Aires Patulot is a dynamic and charismatic professional Catholic speaker, retreat facilitator, workshop leader, musician, and singer. He is committed to training and inspiring the next generation of missionary disciples.

A missionary himself, Aires has spoken to audiences from all over the world. He has built homes with former rebels in the sugar cane fields of the Philippines, gave talks in mud hut villages in Ghana, led retreats across Europe, and continues to share the Gospel in the Northwest.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Aires believes that each person is "called to rise" to the next level of faith and service. Drawing from a variety of topics including Scripture, the saints, the sacraments, and the life of Christ, Aires seeks to teach, challenge, and inspire audiences to take part in the new evangelization.

Aires believes deeply in sacramentality – that the world God created is essentially good and that everything in it has the potential to communicate God's love to the world. Aires uses pop culture, movies, games and music to illustrate the Gospel to his audiences.

Aires has a Bachelor's Degree in Theology and a Master's Degree in Pastoral Studies from Seattle University. He is currently a theology teacher and campus minister at Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien, WA. In his spare time, Aires loves spending time with his wife of nine years, playing with his three rambunctious sons, listening to 90's R&B music, and cycling. His heroes are his grandmother and saints like Peter, Ignatius, Blaise, Leo, and Joseph (which are also the first and middle names of his three boys). He loves Pope Francis and has a special affinity for St. Pope John Paul II, who was instrumental in igniting his passion for the Catholic faith.
