Blessed Mykola Konrad (Ukrainian: Микола Конрад) was a Ukrainian Greek Catholic priest and martyr.

Konrad was born on 16 May 1876 in the village of Strusiv in Ternopil Region.[1] He studied philosophy and theology in Rome, where he defended his dissertation and received his doctorate.[2] He was ordained a priest in 1899.[3] He taught for a time in high schools in Berezhany and Terebovlya, before in 1930 he was asked by Metropolitan Andriy Sheptytsky to teach at the Lviv Theological Academy.[2] He was then appointed parish priest in the village of Stradch.[1]

On 26 June, 1941 agents of the Soviet NKVD mercilessly tortured and murdered him along with Volodymyr Pryjma, in a forest near Stradch as they were returning from the house of a sick woman who had requested the sacrament of reconciliation.[1][2][3]
