Our Rector: The Rev’d Heller Gonzalez

Originally from Cuba but coming to Scotland from Spain, Heller became the new Rector of St Augustine’s Dumbarton in May 2020. He was ordained to the Priesthood in the Spanish Episcopal Church and was the first Priest for the lively Episcopal Church in La Coruña, which he previously established.

Before Ordination Heller was a radiographer.

He served for five years as the Associate Priest for the Renfrewshire Heartland Group of Churches (St Mary’s Port Glasgow, St Fillan’s Kilmacolm, and St Mary’s Bridge of Weir).

Heller is a member of the Anglican Order of Cistercians,  a dispersed and uncloistered community. His leadership brings sensitive and reverent worship of God, coupled with simplicity and gentle pastoral care which encourages us into a deeper faith.
