Father Jeffrey Norfolk, a priest of the Diocese of Sioux Falls, joined Saint John Vianney College Seminary as a formation adviser at the start of the 2022-23 academic year.
The role involves accompanying and mentoring seminarians through their journey of discernment and growth in discipleship.
Originally from Mitchell, South Dakota, Norfolk was ordained to the priesthood in 2009. He spent four years as an associate pastor while also serving in chaplaincy at Northern State University, the University of South Dakota, area hospitals, prisons and jails. He most recently worked as parochial vicar at St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux Falls.
“I’m very eager to join the staff and men in formation at SJV,” Norfolk said. “My time in seminary was the most important human formation I received in my life. I hope to help the men be formed in both their human and spiritual formation and to seek their help in drawing me closer to Christ.”
