Fr. Kevin Hickey joined us to talk about his amazing journey to the priesthood. He was ordained on May 24, 2014, for the Archdiocese of Boston. He had been married to his beloved wife, Claire, for twenty years. She succumbed in 1999 after a seven-year battle with cancer. Fr. Kevin began to get more involved with the Church, to the point where he first took a look at the Archdiocese of Boston’s vocation page in 2004. Thinking that he was too old to pursue the priesthood (at age 53), he went about his life, until the prompting to investigate the priesthood continued to grow stronger. At the urging of a priest friend, he began the application process, and was part of the Archdiocese of Boston’s largest ordination class since 2003. He presently serves as parochial vicar of the collaborative parishes of St. Edward the Confessor in Medfield and St. Jude in Norfolk.
