FATHER JEFF NORFOLK
I was born and raised in Mitchell, SD. I have an older sister, brother and step brother as well as 3 younger step brothers, a half-sister and a half-brother. I went to Catholic grade school and graduated from Mitchell High School in 1999.
I attended Pre-Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville and graduated in 2004. I continued on to Major Seminary in Denver, Colorado at St. John Vianney Seminary where I completed my studies and was ordained a priest on May 29, 2009 at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in SiouxFalls. I began priestly ministry as an Associate Pastor at St. Mary’s in Aberdeen for 2 years. From there I spent two years as an Associate Pastor at St. Mary’s in Sioux Falls as well as being an Assistant Chaplain at Avera Hospitals in Sioux Falls.
I just completed my first year at the St. Thomas More Newman Center at USD as well as being Pastor at
St. Patrick’s in Wakonda.
I am grateful to now be assigned to assist the lives of all of you the faithful of Elk Point, Jefferson, and Dakota Dunes.
