Deziel leaves St. Rita's in Cottage Grove
As the Rev. Bill Deziel leaves St. Rita's Catholic Church in Cottage Grove, he said it was a joy to serve the congregation and walk with them in faith.
After six years, Deziel is headed to St. Peter's Catholic Church in North St. Paul, "a vibrant perish" of 2,200 families and a school. Deziel is among 45 priests moving this summer at the request of the Archdiocese.
"I wasn't looking for a change," Deziel said in an interview. "But we serve at the service of the bishop."
