Statement on Fr. Podson

Dear Fellow Alumni,

The recent article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about the actions of Fr. Ted Podson, who taught here at Devon from 1985 to 1993, has elicited several inquiries from our Devon Prep alumni.

I invite any Devon alumnus, or any member of the Devon Prep Family, to meet with me to discuss your concerns about this situation or to share anything which you would like me to know about this matter. Please feel free to contact me via phone, e-mail, or letter to schedule a meeting.

May God bless you and your loved ones, now and always.

Rev. James J. Shea, Sch.P. ’66
