A graduate of Cathedral High School, Dorsey returned to Western Mass in 1965 as the Elected Rector of the Monastery and Theologate program in West Springfield.
He spent much of his career in Florida, where he was instrumental in expanding the Orlando Diocese.
A wake and mass for Dorsey will be held at Sacred Heart Church on Friday, March 1.
