Rev. Joseph H. Fey
Sept. 20, 1922 - May 2, 2010
NOTRE DAME - Rev. Joseph H. Fey, C.S.C., 87, died at Holy Cross House, Notre Dame, IN, on Sunday, May 2, 2010. Fr. Joseph Fey, C.S.C., was born in Greenock, PA, on September 20, 1922, to Joseph and Marie (Moore) Fey. He attended St. Pius Grade School and St. Peter High School in McKeesport, PA, graduating in 1941. After two years at Notre Dame he entered St. Joseph Novitiate in Rolling Prairie on August 15, 1943, and pronounced his first vows a year and a day later. Returning to Notre Dame and Moreau Seminary, he received his degree in Philosophy in June of 1947 and made his perpetual profession July 16, 1947. For the next four years he studied Theology in Washington, D.C., at Holy Cross College. He was ordained to the priesthood in Sacred Heart Church at Notre Dame on June 6, 1951. Fr. Fey's first assignment was at Sacred Heart Parish in New Orleans. He was there for 12 years, leaving in 1963 to return to Notre Dame as Superior of St. Joseph Hall and the Candidate Program for young men interested in joining Holy Cross. In 1967 he moved across the lake as a chaplain to Notre Dame Students and in 1970 became pastor of Sacred Heart Parish, Notre Dame. In 1976 he attended the Vatican II Institute in Oakland, CA, and one year later served as an assistant in Christ the King Parish, South Bend. Appointed pastor of Christ the King in 1978, he remained there for seven years and then became associate at St. Joseph Parish for two years before once again accepting the pastor's position at St. Casimir's in South Bend. In 1994 he moved to Corby Hall and assisted at Faith, Hope and Charity Chapel in downtown South Bend. In 1999, due to declining health, he moved to Holy Cross House. Fr. Fey was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Marie Fey. He is survived by a brother, Maurice Fey, and two sisters, Joan (Fey) Fox and Clara (Fey) Ullinger. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Viewing for Fr.
