Tony’s Bio

Praised be Jesus Christ!

My name is Anthony Ragaisis, and I am the Director of Evangelization. Originally, I grew up in Wisconsin and was raised in a Catholic family. It’s been a huge blessing to have received a Catholic education throughout my life specifically high school at St. Lawrence Seminary and receiving an undergraduate degree from Cardinal Stritch University. As I grew in my faith after college, I discerned a calling to the priesthood and spent a few years growing in my prayer life, studying theology, and learning about the rich traditions of the Catholic faith. Afterwards, I completed a Master of Arts in Theology from Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology. I have called Rochester my home for the past five years with my beautiful bride and now wonderful children. In continuing to pursue the Lord in my day-to-day work and family life, He led me to this position, and I am thrilled to be working for Christ at the parish. I hope to bring the joy I have for the Lord to others through interactions and get everyone excited to live out and spread the Good News of the Gospel wherever He takes them.

“O God you are my God, for you I long; for you my soul is thirsting. My body pines for you like a dry, weary land without water. So I gaze on you in the sanctuary to see your strength and your glory.” (Psalm 63:2-3)
