Albert Cutié has had the special privilege of entering millions of homes throughout the world with his television and radio talk shows, books, and newspaper columns. His first book, Real Life, Real Love (Published by Penguin) is available in English and became an international bestseller in Spanish.

Father Albert has been involved in ministry since he was a teenager. Originally a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, he served in the Archdiocese of Miami since his ordination on May 13, 1995 and was officially received in The Episcopal Church in May, 2009. He is a parish priest in the Diocese of Southeast Florida. Father Albert and his wife Ruhama have three children – Christian (21), Camila (5) and Albert (3).

In October of 1998, Father Albert became the first clergy person to host a daily talk show on secular television for a major network and aired on international television. He has been referred to as “Father Oprah” by Newsweek, Time, and other publications. His first talk show became an award-winning program that ran for three seasons on Telemundo (Owned by NBC/Comcast) in the United States and distributed to every country in Latin America. He later continued to host weekly shows HABLANDO CLARO CON EL PADRE ALBERTO (Straight Talk with Father Albert), and ABRE TU ALMA CON EL PADRE ALBERTO (Open Your Soul with Father Albert).

In addition to his extensive work in the media, he has served continually as a full-time parish priest and administrator in several parishes for the last 20 years. He was President and C.E.O. of Pax Catholic Communications (a multimedia organization known as Radio Peace and Radio Paz in Miami) from 2001 until 2009. One of Father Albert’s passions is to engage audiences with faith perspectives on real-life problems which affect our modern-day society, especially controversial issues, too often avoided by spiritual leaders.

Father Albert is the Rector of St. Benedict’s in Plantation, FL.  He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of The Duncan Center—a conference/retreat center in the Diocese of Southeast Florida. He is a member of the Commission on Ministry and a Trustee of the University of the South (Sewanee), where he completed his Doctor of Ministry degree.

In his memoir entitled Dilemma, he shares his experiences and personal  journey that led to his transition from the Roman Catholic Church to The Episcopal Church. Fr. Albert’s latest book, Talking God, is the result of his research and studies on the area of communication as it pertains to preaching in the digital age. It was published by Church Publishing in April 2016.
