Fr. Patrick P. Casey
In March 2004, we were blessed with another Irish priest, Fr. Patrick Casey. After being honorably discharged from the United States Navy as an Electronics technician Second Class, he entered the seminary and was ordained a priest in May of 1997. Fr. Pat had been pastoral administrator of St. Dominic Church and St. Patrick in midtown Detroit.
He was a member of the Fraternal Order of the United Irish, the Gaelic Fire Brigade of Detroit, the Tagus Caravan of the Al Hambra, and the Ryan Division of the Ancient Order of the Hibernians.
Fr. Pat left St. Thomas a'Becket on June 30, 2012, to become the pastor at St. Damian, St. Theodore and Church of the Divine Savior.
