Mass of Christian Burial for Father Jerry Dorn, GHM, was celebrated Nov. 14 at St. Matthias Church in Cincinnati.

Father Dorn, a Glenmary Home Missioner, died at his home in Kingsport. He was 70.

During his long career in ministry, he served in a wide range of roles — from parish brother and mission pastor to vocation director and Glenmary president — and was also deeply connected to the Glenmary Group Volunteer Program.

In his last official assignment, he served as director of Glenmary’s candidacy and postnovitiate programs in St. Meinrad, Ind. He took senior membership in 2013.

“Father Dorn was a Glenmarian to the core and was willing to serve in whatever ways needed to help,” said Glenmary president Father Chet Artysiewicz. “He possessed a tremendous amount of energy, love for life, and total dedication and commitment to Glenmary. And he left a powerful, lasting impression on people.”
