Fr. Dat was ordained in May, 2011, by then-Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York at our mother church, the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, in New York City.
In his first assignment, Fr. Dat served as associate pastor at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Los Angeles. After three years in that role, he became associate pastor at Newman Hall-Holy Spirit Parish at the University of California, Berkeley — where, as a student, he first met our community.
Fr. Dat can be reached at (917) 830-5537 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
