Useful information on Father Ray Santos
* Resides at the Church rectory.
Current: Catholic Priest
Ray was born into the Santos crime family but managed to keep himself out of the family business. Choosing the priesthood still allowed him to stay close to his family and he remained their trusted confidant. This wasn't without a cost and Father Ray has had to struggle with his conscience on numerous occasions to stay true to his vows. He aided his cousin Danny and wife Michelle in their flight to San Cristobel to escape murder charges and became the moral adviser to his gangster brother Tony, becoming mixed up in his love affairs with Marah Lewis and Catalina Quesada. Always keeping his distance, Ray managed to steer his family on the right path more often than not.
