Father Richard (Rick) J. Kosisko

Fr. Rick.pngFather  Rick  is  no  stranger  to  the mountain or St. Raymond. Some of you may  remember  him  helping  with weddings, funerals, attending  parish events, etc.  During the  early 90s,  while a chaplain at  Seton  Hill, Father  Rick  was called upon  to help during  Lent  here  when a former pastor became  ill.  So,  he  would   come  every  week  to  offer assistance, and as you know,  he was here every year for Penance  Services.  He  is  definitely  not  a  stranger to our community. Father  Rick  was  born  February  25, 1958  in  Connellsville. He  attended   Immaculate  Conception  Parish  and  was educated at Conn-Area Catholic and Geibel Catholic High School. He earned a B.A. in Philosophy at St. Pius X, in Kentucky and a masters in Divinity (Theology) from Mary Immaculate in North Hampton, PA.  He was ordained a priest May  4, 1985.  He  attended  the  Catholic  University of America in  Washington, D.C., and  received a Licentiate  of  Canon  Law (JCL). He  has been a parochial vicar, administrator  pro tem, chaplain  and  pastor at numerous places  within  the  diocese.  He currently serves as pastor at St. Pius X and administrator of Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary both in Mount Pleasant. He has also served in many capacities within the  diocese  including  Defender of the Bond and Advocate on the Diocesan  Tribunal and Regional Clergy Moderator of Region IX.

Father Anthony Onoko
Parochial Vicar, St. Raymond of the Mountains

Father Anthony was appointed parochial vicar of St. Pius X Parish, Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish both of Mt. Pleasant and here at St. Raymond, Donegal.

Father Anthony was born on June 28, 1981 in Osisi, Nigeria. He is from the Diocese of Ilorin, Kwara, which he calls the "middle belt" of Nigeria. He was inspired to become a priest by Irish missionary priests in his home diocese. He came to Greensburg in January 2020 and arrived at St. Raymond the day before everything stopped due to coronavirus.

In his home diocese, Father Anthony was a secretary to Bishop Ayo Maria Atoyebi, O.P. for more than three years. Bishop Atoyebi requires all his secretaries to travel to gain missionary work experience.  He is happy to be traveling and is enjoying serving in a place that is not like his home in Africa. He is looking forward to learning about parish organization and the way people of the Diocese of Greensburg express their faith.

Father Anthony is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Paul Yemisi Onoko. He also has a sister, and two brothers (one is deceased). He was ordained a priest on November 21st, 2013 by the Most Rev. Dr. Ayo-Maria Atoyebi, O.P. "Today I am a priest and I thank God for that gift", he said. "If God gave his only begotten Son for us, then there is nothing that is too great to give back to God." Father Anthony resides at St. Raymond Rectory.
