2024 06-23  Welcome Fr. Colin Patrick, our newly Ordained Parochial Vicar

Written by: Father Neil Herlihy

During the first week in July, we will welcome Fr. Colin Patrick to our Saint Brigid parish family as our new parochial vicar.  Fr. Colin was recently ordained to the priesthood of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.  He attended the U.S. Military Academy and completed his principal theological studies at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake Mundelein Seminary (Mundelein), in Illinois.

Fr. Colin is thankful for the gift of his vocation.  He is also thankful for the spiritual vitality that is evident in the Saint Brigid faith community and is anxious to assist our parishioners through his priestly service.  Fr. Colin will strive to focus on the essentials of his priesthood, including celebrating Mass, hearing confessions, and visiting the sick, in addition to other assigned duties.  He will also work closely with our adult and youth faith formation ministries.

Fr. Colin was born and raised in Norcross.  He enjoys watching college football, and also enjoys outdoor activities, especially camping, backpacking, and hunting.  Please pray for Fr. Colin and welcome him to our faith community.

All are welcome to attend Fr. Colin Patricks’ Welcome Reception on Sunday, July 7th, 2024, at 12 Noon in Corbett Hall.
