DIOCESAN MISSIONARY SEMINARY OF BRIDGEPORT
RICARDO BATISTA COMIM
My name is Ricardo Batista Comim, and I was born on May 15, 1990. I grew up in Jundiai, Sao Paulo, in Brazil. I am an only child. I began my priestly formation at Redemptoris Mater Seminary in Newark, New Jersey, in January of 2011. I graduated from philosophy in May of 2015. When the Seminary of Bridgeport was erected, I was asked if I would like to be part of this new Seminary to which I agreed without hesitation. So I arrived in Bridgeport in December 2015. I can say that I am delighted with the mission the Lord is giving me. I am grateful to the Lord for my Neocatechumenal community in Brazil, and in Bridgeport, without these brothers and sisters, my life would have no meaning. I am also grateful for my family, who encourages me and supports me in this vocation. I am also thankful for the catechists that God has placed in my life: they serve as my ongoing spiritual directors. I would also like to tell all our benefactors that they can count on my prayers.
