From Father Z.s Blog, August 2, 2021:

A friend of many years, and a long-time participant here, Fr. Angel Sotelo died yesterday.

He suffered with cancer and recently had serious surgery. He didn’t make it past cancer…

… but I am confident that he made it on the path to heaven.

Please, in your mercy, say a pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Angel Sotelo, a priest of the Diocese of Fresno.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

From Churches Worth Driving To review of St. Columba, Chowchilla, January 24, 2020:

Fr. Angel Sotelo, pastor. Fr. Sotelo is a fine homilist, orthodox and knowledgeable in both philosophy and theology. He’s also quite approachable, easy going, friendly and has a good sense of humor. He is also an encyclopedia of knowledge about the history of the Diocese of Fresno.
