Dean was ordained an Anglican priest in 1968. He was in ministry for over 30 years and was received into full-communion with the Catholic Church upon his retirement. Dean felt he was “Catholic” in his heart his entire life.

    Is this, by any chance, the Dean Purdy who was a curate at the Anglican church in Smiths Falls in the 1960’s? If so, please convey my desire to get in contact.
