Fr. Stephen Dyas, LC, was born on 7 January 1976, in a small town near Bally, PA, and raised in Reddick, IL. He is the third oldest of seven children – six boys and one girl. In 1989 he joined the Legion’s High School Seminary, then known as Immaculate Conception Apostolic School. After seminary years in Cheshire, CT, and Rome, he did internship in New Hampshire, Canada, and California. Fr. Stephen was ordained a priest on the 22 December 2007 at St. Mary Major Basilica in Rome. Since his ordination to priesthood he has worked in France and Montreal, Canada, working with boys and serving as a spiritual director and retreat master to Regnum Christi members. He has worked in New York City in development for Regnum Christi and the Legionaries of Christ, and was also a chaplain for the Lumen Institute. Both in Montreal and New York, Fr. Stephen was an associate priest in a few different parishes. He then again went back to France to work at Sacred Heart Parish in Bordeaux, France, and later to Switzerland to be chaplain of Le Chatelard, an all-girls boarding school run by the consecrated women of Regnum Christi. Fr. Stephen loves being a priest, and loves the Bible, a variety of sports (in 2018 he ran the New York City Marathon) and working outside in the fresh air. He is excited about his new mission in Chicago!
