DOHERTY, Patrick, Canadian clergyman, born in Quebec, 2 June 1838; died there in 1872. He received his early education in the schools of the Christian brothers of Quebec, was graduated at the seminary, and appointed professor of English. In 1864 he joined the novitiate of the Jesuits, but had to leave it owing to feeble health. He was ordained in 1865, and at once became noted as a pulpit orator. He was elected president of St. Patrick's institute, and delivered courses of lectures before this and other literary bodies. In 1869 he traveled through Europe and Palestine, and wrote a journal of his travels. He accompanied the Canadian papal zonaves as chaplain on their return to Canada in 1870. In 1871 he was appointed vicar of St. Roch and chaplain to the hospital of Quebec. But his health was broken by his labors, and a series of lectures before the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, on the principal incidents of his travels, completed his prostration. A collection of his French writings was published in Quebec in 1872.
