Monsignor Raul del Valle (1926-1988) was born in Cuba on June 1, 1926. He left Cuba to study in Rome and in 1949 he earned a Licentiate in Canon Law at Gregorian University. He then returned to Cuba to be ordained as a priest. He was Secretary to the Cardinal, but was forced to flee the county after Fidel Castro came to power. He arrived in the United States in 1961, where he held several parish and teaching assignments until he was made pastor of Saint Anselm Parish in 1976. After rehabilitating and revitalizing the church, the Archidiocese asked him to take over the parish at Saint Athanasius in 1980.
