Priests
"Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also must wash one another’s feet."
(John 13: 14)
Fr. Kevin Deeley grew up in Belmont, worshipping at Sacred Heart Parish in Watertown. He was ordained with Fr. Jerry Hogan in 1974. His priesthood assignments have included being a parochial vicar at St. Peter's, Dorchester, and at St. Mary's, Brookline. He was a chaplain at Matignon High School, Cambridge, and worked in the Clergy Personnel Office for the Archdiocese. For the past 16 years, he served as a U.S. Navy Chaplain, ministering to the Sailors and Marines and their families throughout the world and finally he just finished a temporary administrator assignment at St. Rafael Parish in Medford.
Parochial Vicar: Rev. Eric Cadin
On Saturday, June 23, 2012, 6 men were ordained into the priesthood by Cardinal Sean O'Malley at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. St. Michael's is blessed to receive one of the newly ordained, Fr. Eric Cadin as parochial vicar! Fr. Cadin is one of five children (two sisters, two brothers) of James Cadin of Weymouth and the late Harriet (Toland) Cadin. St. Francis Xavier, Weymouth is his home parish and he is an alumnus of its school. He is also a graduate of the Roxbury Latin School in West Roxbury and of Harvard College, Cambridge.

Father Cadin completed his seminary studies at St. John's in Brighton and, in addition to receiving the Master of Divinity from St. John's, he also graduated from the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry with a license in sacred theology. During his deacon year, he was an intern at St. Columbkille Parish, Brighton.

Between his college and seminary studies he spent time in Hawaii perfecting his surfing skills; on waves, not on the internet.

Parochial Vicar: Rev. Bill Donnelly, O.S.A.
Although a native of Philadelphia, Fr. Bill is no stranger to the Merrimack Valley.  He was a “baby priest” at St. Augustine, Andover in 1968 and served as the full-time Catholic Chaplain at Lawrence General Hospital in the 70’s.  Before St. Michael’s, Fr. Bill served for many years as a pastor in New York City and in Philadelphia.  He has been a member of the Augustinian Provincial Council.  Fr. Bill loves everything about his priestly ministry, especially Sunday Eucharist – It’s his “most enjoyable time of the week”.  For leisure, he enjoys sculling, hiking and all outdoor activities.  As a matter of fact, Fr. Keyes taught him to ski while there were both young priests, serving in Andover!
Deacon: Vincent Gatto
