Father Francisco J. Quezada
Pastor, St. Mark Catholic Parish
Episcopal Vicar for Hispanic Ministry, Diocese of Colorado Springs
Fr. Francisco Javier Quezada was born on April 17, 1958 in Corpus Christi, Texas. He is often referred to as Fr. Frank or Fr. Quezada by parishioners, colleagues and friends.
He serves as President of the National Association of Hispanic Priests and a Consultant on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations and a member of the Subcommittee on Hispanic Vocations, a committee of the National Catholic Association of Diocesan Directors of Vocations, a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher and Knights of Columbus.
One of his favorite saints is Teresa of Avila and 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. He is very very happy to be assigned to St. Mark and invites us to a mass with him on his first day August 19 at 6:30 pm in the evening with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament to follow as he desires to dedicate his new pastorate to the Holy Eucharist.
