Carlos Mugica was an Argentine Roman Catholic priest and activist.
Carlos Francisco Sergio Mugica was born in Buenos Aires, in 1930, into a privileged background. His father, Adolfo Mugica, had been one of the founders of the Conservative Party (opponents of suffrage activist and populist President Hipolito Yrigoyen), and his mother was Carmen Echague - herself born to one of Argentina's premier landowners. Mugica was the only one of seven siblings to have completed both his primary and secondary education in secular schools, and he graduated from the prestigious public college preparatory school, the National College of Buenos Aires.
Mugica enrolled at the University of Buenos Aires in 1949 and was accepted into its Law School; but in 1952, following a year in Europe, he resolved to enter the priesthood.
