"Father Rick was married with three children, a successful veterinarian and horse expert. In 2005, his wife, Marilyn, tragically died of a heart attack. Slowly Father Lesser turned to his new vocation, the priesthood, and, in 2015, was ordained for the Diocese of Albany at the age of 60."
Alumnus Fr. Rick Lesser '15 of the Diocese of Albany talks with Mike Matvey of The Evangelist about his path to priesthood later in life.

"Discerning isn’t about explaining to God what you think you should be doing next, it is about hearing what God thinks you should be doing next." – Fr. Rick Lesser '15
