Following studies at Oxford, Richard Sergeant, of Gloucestshire, England, enrolled as a seminarian at the English College of Reims, France. In 1583, he was ordained to the priesthood in Laon and returned to England to serve the country’s persecuted Catholics. Within three years of arriving, he would be arrested, sentenced to death, and hung, drawn, and quartered at Tyburn, London, dying together with another priest, Blessed William Thomson.
