Reverend Randolph R. Calvo was born on August 28, 1951 in Agana, Guam. He is the seventh and youngest child of Maria Guadalupe and Ricardo Calvo, both deceased. His family moved to San Francisco in 1957, where he attended local schools. He received his Master in Divinity from St. Patrick’s Seminary, Menlo Park, California, and was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of San Francisco on May 21, 1977. He was ordained as the seventh Bishop of the Diocese of Reno on February 17, 2006.

After serving in two parishes as parochial vicar, he was sent to study canon law in Rome. In 1986, he received a doctorate in canon law from the University of St. Thomas. From 1987 to 1997, he headed the canon law department as judicial vicar of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. He was elected and served as president of the Canon Law Society of America in 1996, a professional association based in Alexandria, Virginia.

Since July 1, 1997, he has been the pastor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Redwood City, California, a culturally diverse and multi-ethnic community.

In addition to these assignments, he has served as a member of the Archdiocesan College of Consultors, the Council of Priests, the Priest Personnel Board, the Stewardship Council, the Independent Review Board, the Board of Trustees of the Roman Catholic Welfare Corporation, and the Board of Trustees of St. Patrick’s Seminary.
