Lourdes,” referring to a town in France known to Catholics as a place of healing.“He made everyone feel special,” said Barry.Rev. Michael Pierz, who said he knew Decoteau well, having come to the Belchertown parish 10 months ago as a Parochial Vicar, called him “a priest’s priest” who had a “great love for and devotion to the official part of the church and the divine promise.”Pierz said he was able to pray with Decoteau shortly before he died and was able to see first hand the love his parishioners had for him. “He baptized entire generations and then married them,” said Pierz. “There are so many young parishioners who are so upset because they can’t believe that the priest who baptized them, gave them first holy communion, prepared them for confirmation and they were planning to have him marry them, unfortunately passed away, they couldn’t believe that.”Before coming to Belchertown, Decoteau served as pastor of the former Blessed Sacrament Parish in Northampton from 1992 to 1996, according to the diocese.He served as an assistant priest at St. Mary Parish in Westfield from 1975-1979 and also was chaplain for the Newman Community at Westfield State College from 1976-1979.Decoteau taught at Cathedral High School from 1979 to 1982 and then earned a master’s degree in liturgy from Notre Dame University. He was assigned to the Office of Pastoral Ministry and Worship and was director of the Priests’ Choir from 1983 to 1992. He also served as diocesan director of ceremonies during that time.Tamara Falcone, a longtime parishioner, remembered Decoteau’s fondness for hosting picnics on the lawn of the rectory behind the church.After Friday’s service there was also a picnic. Besides food there was a sound system. The music was Broadway show tunes.Eric Goldscheider can be reached at eric.goldscheider@gmail.com...
