Padre Miguel Hacienda Diego Lopez

Catholic Priest

Born in Cleveland OH, Lopez opted for the Priesthood at a young age and joined the Seminary after high school.

Nicknamed Padre Lopez by his parishioners upon arriving to New Haven, the moniker stuck.

Lopez is a good guy trying to work in a horribly imperfect world to serve the betterment of the community.

The Padre is an easy going likable Priest with an incredible memory for peoples names. His ability to connect with people has made him a fixture in the community as he seems to know everyone.

In addition to his clerical duties, Lopez helps run a soup kitchen out of St Mary’s where they serve a soup every lunch nicknamed “Kibble stew.”
