Father Ian Bozant – Parochial Vicar of St. Patrick’s Church

Friday, July 7th, 2017

This weekend we welcome Fr. Ian Bozant as Parochial Vicar of St. Patrick’s Parish.

Fr. Bozant was born a triplet to Bruce and Dorine Bozant on June I, 1988. He and his two sisters Heather & Dominique grew up in Chalmette and attended Our Lady of Prompt Succor Parish and School.

From seventh grade until his senior year, Fr. Bozant attended Holy Cross High School. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina’s destruction forced the evacuation of the Bozant family from New Orleans, with Fr. Bozant completing his prep schooling at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California. He continued his education at Villanova University; St. Joseph’s Seminary College and Notre Dame Seminary.

While completing his studies at Notre Dame Seminary, Fr. Bozant was a frequent visitor to St. Patrick’s often assisting at Sunday Mass.

Next Sunday, July 9, 2017 after the 9:30 a.m. Mass, there will be a reception in Reynolds Hall and the adjacent courtyard, so that all of St. Patrick’s parishioners and friends can personally welcome Fr. Bozant to our parish as parochial vicar. Everyone is cordially invited.
