William Dirk, born on December 13, 1933, is a loving husband, fantastic father, and devoted deacon of the Catholic Church.
He was ordained for service to the Diocese of Cleveland on June 2, 1984 and served the first ten years of his ministry at Holy Cross Parish (now Our Lady of the Lake) in Euclid. He came to Our Lady of Peace on August 15, 1994 and during his time here has been tireless in his ministry to the ill and homebound and in the preparation of adults for reception into the Catholic Church.
Throughout and beyond his years of ministry Bill has had the support and encouragement of his wife, Judy. In fact, they were married right here at Our Lady of Peace.
Bill will end his formal assignment at OLP on Sunday, May 20, with a special Mass and reception at 11 AM. (YOU ARE WELCOME. PLEASE COME!) His participation in the life of Our Lady of Peace and his ministry will continue as he is able.
Pleae join us on May 20 in giving thanks to God for this good, holy, kind, gracious, and compassionate man of God.
