Diocesan Ministries Appeal 2023

My Name is Fr. Diego

"God is calling us by name for a specific mission."

Born in Colombia in 1986, Fr. Diego was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Paterson on May 28, 2022 at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Paterson. He currently serves the faithful of St. Peter the Apostle in Parsippany as parochial vicar.

"The seminary has helped me in many dimensions of my life... those who support the Appeal have helped me in my formation, to be more conscious of my vocation. And without them, it could not be possible."

The Diocesan Ministries Appeal funds the education of our seminarians. With your support, our future priests will grow in the love of the Lord and His Church and will be fully prepared to serve the faithful of our Diocese.
