Friar Mario Serrano lives in San Antonio, Texas with his Conventual Franciscan brothers. The Dexter, New Mexico native’s day-to-day ministry is that of Director of University Ministry at Our Lady of the Lake University (a well known Catholic institution in San Antonio).
On April 8, 2016, Friar Mario will be at the Chapel of Our Lady of the Lake for an important event in his life. Bishop John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky (who is also a Conventual Franciscan) will ordain Friar Mario to the transitional diaconate. Mario’s family, friends, Franciscan brothers, and members of the university community will all be there to support him.
As Director of University Ministry at OLLU, Friar Mario maintains a busy schedule. He coordinates and leads retreats, takes students on service missions, and generally does what he can to encourage folks to embrace and always strive to grow in their faith.
