Born in Hayward, California, a suburb of San Francisco, Fr. Vincent Serpa, attended Bishop O’Dowd High School and the University of San Francisco, and entered the Dominican Novitiate for the U.S. western province of the Dominican Order. Ordained in 1968, he spent three years doing radio work in San Francisco while still in school. Since then he has served in Dominican parishes in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon.

From 1992 to 2000 he served as novice master in Oakland, California. In September of that year he joined the staff at Catholic Answers as chaplain and staff apologist. He particularly enjoys answering questions on the "Ask an Apologist" forum and producing his daily “Catholic Answers Minute.”
