WHEREAS, Father Llorente was born in Spain, the youngest of nine children; and
WHEREAS, following in the footsteps of his oldest brother, Father Llorente joined the Jesuit order as a priest; and
WHEREAS, after being ordained as a priest in 1948, he was sent to Havana, Cuba to become the Principal of Belen School, but at that time, a director for a new retreat house was needed and he went to fill the post; and
WHEREAS, his friendship with Father Felipe Rey de Castro, a distinguished Jesuit who had founded a sodality of university students and professional men called Agrupación Católica Universitaria, next took him into what would be the most important commitment in his life; and
WHEREAS, when Father Rey passed away in 1952, Father Llorente was chosen to become the new director of Agrupación Católica Universitaria, a post he kept for the next 58 years; and
WHEREAS, Father Llorente greatest achievement was to relocate the Agrupación Católica Universitaria from Cuba to the United States; and
WHEREAS, Father Armando Llorente passed away on April 28, 2012; and
WHEREAS, NE 27th Street from Biscayne Bay to Biscayne Boulevard is a city street located in the City of Miami; and

WHEREAS, this codesignation is located in County Commission District 3,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Approves the City of Miami codesignation of NE 27th Street from Biscayne Bay to Biscayne Boulevard as “Most Reverend Father Armando Llorente Way”.
