Ángel Abrea (born 13 September 1933) was the first resident of Latin America to become a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Abrea was baptized into the LDS Church in 1943, at the age of ten. Prior to his call as a general authority, Abrea was the first stake president in Argentina (1966–71; 1976–78); he also served as a regional representative (1971–76) and as president of the church's Argentina Rosario Mission (1978–81).

Abrea was called by LDS Church president Spencer W. Kimball as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy on 20 March 1981. Abrea also became the first president of the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple when it opened in 1986. On 4 October 2003, Abrea was designated as an emeritus general authority and released from full-time ecclesiastical duties.

Abrea married María Victoria Chiapparino in Argentina on 4 July 1957. The Abreas and their three daughters were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on 26 September 1966.
