Rev. Antonio L. Ricarte, Pastor - ext. 102 - email@example.com
Father Antonio “Tony” Ricarte, is originally from Cebu, Philippines. He was ordained on June 16, 1998. Four years after his ordination, he was given the opportunity to leave his country to take further theological studies in Missiology at the Gregorian Pontifical University in Rome. During the period of his studies in Rome, he came to the US for the first time in July 2003 as a “summer priest” at St. Joseph Church, Oradell, NJ. That marked the beginning of his journey in the Archdiocese of Newark. Before coming to Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, he has been assigned as Parochial Vicar at St. Joseph Church, Oradell (2009-2011), Sacred Heart Church, Haworth (2011-2013), Our Lady of Mt. Virgin Church, Garfield (2013-2015), and Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church, Roseland (2015-2019). He was also the Chaplain of Bergen Catholic High School, Oradell (2011-2015).
