Mission Statement

To be a welcoming Catholic Community, teaching God’s word, helping those in need, and living a life in Christ.


Welcome Fr. Francisco Quezada

Fr. Francisco Javier Quezada was born on April 17, 1958, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Parishioners, colleagues, and friends often refer to him as Fr. Frank or Fr. Quezada.

Fr. Quezada first entered the seminary at the age of 15 and graduated from St. Anthony High School Seminary in San Antonio, Texas in 1976. He was ordained a priest on January 9, 1988.

Fr. Quezada established the Diocesan Office of Hispanic Ministry after serving as Pastor at Our Lady of Guadalupe. In 2007 Bishop Sheridan appointed him as Vicar for Hispanic Ministry and Pastor of St. Mary Cathedral. Fr. Quezada has served as President of the National Association of Hispanic Priests, Consultant on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Clergy, a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Knights of Columbus.

Fr. Quezada served at St. Mark Catholic Church in Highlands Ranch, Colorado before taking some time to return to Texas to be close to his family. He returned to Colorado Springs this year to serve at Corpus Christi.

With the departure of Fr. Jaimes Ponce, Fr. Quezada serves St. Benedict and St. Michael parishes as Parochial Administrator. One of his favorite saints is Teresa of Avila. Fr. Quezada has a particular devotion to the Mother of Our Lord, Mary. He makes it a personal task as priest to invite others to consider the priesthood.
