VIDEO: Introducing the Newly Ordained Father Richie Mercado, O.S.A.

Updated: Feb 20, 2023

This summer, three men entered a new closeness with God. They received the Sacrament of Holy Orders: Ordination to the Priesthood.

The first was Father Richie Mercado, O.S.A., who was ordained by Bishop Robert F. Prevost, O.S.A., on June 10 at Saint Rita of Cascia Parish in Chicago. Please take a few moments to enjoy the 2½-minute video capturing the ordination Mass - and share with others!

Our other two new priests are Fathers Carlos Medina, O.S.A.; and Joe Murray, O.S.A. We will soon be posting an article about what it feels like to now enter the priesthood!
