Dereck Delgado is a sixth-year seminarian with the Archdiocese of San Francisco, studying at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, CA. His vocational journey started in high school during a profound moment of Eucharistic Adoration. He encountered the gift of love that was so transformative that it moved him to consider making his own self-gift to others as a priest. He is eager to be a witness of the healing power of the Eucharist by bringing the Blessed Sacrament throughout the country as a Perpetual Pilgrim. Whether it involves reaching one soul or a thousand, he believes that this pilgrimage is a pivotal moment for both the Church and the country. He wants to serve as an instrument for God’s desire to deepen his relationship with his people. Outside of his studies, Dereck enjoys watching baseball, working on fitness, and practicing photography. A fun fact about him is that he was born and raised in Guam (in other words, the middle of the ocean). Dereck is the youngest of four children and an uncle to four very active boys.
