Welcome to Saint Cecilia Catholic Church

Meet Our New Pastor!

Father Ireneo "Rene" Ramoso was born on April 20, 1963 to Felipe Ramoso, Sr. and Teresita Rey in Oas Albay, Philippines. He is the fourth son of nine brothers; all attended the seminary; and two of the nine brothers are ordained priests.  Mom was the only girl in the family!

He attended Saint Benedict’s Academy in Guinobatan, Albay for his grade school years and went on to attend Saint Gregory the Great Seminary in Tabaco City, and proceeded to Holy Rosary Major Seminary in Naga, Philippines from 1982-1988.

Reverend Rene Ramoso

He was ordained in the diaconate on September 4, 1988.  On March 11, 1989, Father Rene was ordained to the priesthood at Saint Gregory the Great Cathedral in Albay, Philippines by the Most Reverend Concodio Maria Sarte, Bishop of Legazpi.

His Pastoral assignments in the Philippines include Saint Stephen Parish, Ligao City; Saint Rose of Lima, Albay, Parish at Soldier Hills, Alabang; and, San Roque Parish, Mandaluyong.

Fr. Rene moved to the Bay Area in 1994 through the persuasion of his uncle, Father Antonio R. Rey, who was a former priest of the Archdiocese of San Francisco.  He served as Associate Vicar at the following parishes: Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Daly City; Saint Luke’s Church, Foster City; and, Saint Pius Church, Redwood City.

He was installed as the fifth Pastor at Saint Augustine Church in South San Francisco on July 1, 2004 and served there for fourteen and a half years.  He concurrently served as Dean of Deanery 8 for five years and as a member of the Deposit and Loan Committee for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.  He is presently assigned to Saint Cecilia Church effective January 1, 2019 and will be installed as our 8th Pastor.

Stay tuned for more information regarding Father Rene's upcoming Installation as Pastor of Saint Cecilia's Church.
