After nearly three decades serving Sacred Hearts Parish in Malden, Father Daniel Hickey retired following a Sunday service in late August, according to a city press statement.

Following an Aug. 25 service, Hickey said farewell to his congregation during mass which was attended by Mayor Gary Christenson, Police Chief Kevin Molis and Fire Chief Jack Colangeli. Father Hickey served as pastor of Sacred Hearts Parish for 28 years, and he also oversaw operations at Cheverus School.  

“I wish Father Hickey all the best in his retirement,” said Christenson in the statement. “We not only appreciate his years of leadership at Sacred Hearts, but we also thank him for his service to the entire Malden community.”

What will I remember most about Fr. Hickey? How he failed to show up at the cemetery for my father's burial as he kept us waiting on a raw and windy December day. Fortunately, the funeral dircetor stepped in and led a few prayers. Never got any kind of apology either.
