Fr. Derrik Oliveira Biography

Born in the East Bay, I grew up in Castro Valley.  After graduating Castro Valley High School in 2000, I enlisted in the United States Navy.  Upon honorable discharge after five years of active duty service, I entered the seminary for the Diocese of Oakland.  For three years I studied at Mount Agnel Seminary in Oregon and then was asked to complete four years of study in Rome.  Following ordination I was assigned to St. Bede Catholic Church in Hayward.  I served as the parochial vicar of St. Bede’s for two years.
