Monsignor John E. “Jed” Patrick a native of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, was ordained to the priesthood at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome on December 21, 1967.
He served as a priest of the Diocese of Marquette for almost 45 years as an Associate Pastor, Pastor, Vocation Director and Vicar General. He retired in July 2009 and became a “senior priest.” Msgr. Jed enjoys visiting parishes and substituting for his brother priests in Marquette and in the Diocese of Palm Beach, Florida.
Msgr. Jed is looking forward to a meaningful relationship with Cross Catholic “delivering food, shelter and hope for the poorest of the poor.” He says, “It is a welcome privilege to serve our poor sisters and brothers in this small way.”
