                    Priest    -   January 1977

Fr. Deatrick served in the Diocese of NJ: St, Michael’s, Wall; St. Uriel’s where he met his wife to be, Jean Rodgers and at St. Mark and All Saints, Galloway Township, prior to his retirement, July 1st, 2007.

 

He attended Heidelberg University, OH, ‘73-’76; Seabury Western Theo. Seminary, Evanston, IL ‘76-’79. Ordained Deacon, Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland, June ‘76; Priest, Northfield, IL, the Confession of St. Peter, January 18th, ‘77.

 

Served in collar suburbs of Chicago; Diocese of DE and St. Paul’s Cathedral, Quincy. This included shorter term, specialized, ministries after invitation by Bishop Griswold, Chicago, to be in first class of trained Interim Priests.

 

Another interesting call was to Seabury Western Seminary, to serve under the then Dean, now retired Bishop Sisk, NY, ‘95-’98.

 

Since retirement Fr. Deatrick has enjoyed assisting in St. Uriel’s ministry and in a few chosen parishes, such as St. Elizabeth’s, Ortley Beach. Most of all, Fr. Deatrick and Jean feel fortunate to be “part of the worshipping family” under Fr. Russell Griffin.
