Fr. David Kelly OSA
I am originally from Dublin and since my ordination as an Augustinian Friar in 1977, I have served in the parish of St. Pius V, in Buena Park, California; in Good Counsel College, a secondary school run by the Augustinians, in New Ross, Co. Wexford, at St. Augustine’s Priory, Cork, in our priory at Thomas Street, Dublin (popularly known as John’s Lane) and at our priory in Ballyboden, Rathfarnham.
In my 40 years of ministry, I have been privileged to work in the areas of second-level and third-level education. Currently, I am involved part-time in the Loyola Institute at TCD. I have also been involved for over 30 years in retreat ministry, to religious communities (female and male) in Ireland and the UK.
