Reverend Raymond Emedo

In Residence

[email protected]

He was born in Lagos, Nigeria, as the youngest of eight children, three boys and five girls. On November 8, 2018, he was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Lagos. Afterwards, he served as parochial vicar at the Holy Cross Cathedral until December 2023 when he moved to the U.S. to begin studies initially at the Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.

This fall of 2024, he will begin studies at the Divine Mercy University in pursuit of a Doctor of Psychology degree. He enjoys participating in sporting activities such as soccer, table tennis, and lawn tennis.

He has a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, inculcated in him by his family upbringing as they all belonged to the Block Rosary Crusade and the Legion of Mary. Indeed, he am glad to be here and look forward to being of some pastoral assistance.
