This is a photograph of Fr. Flick "engaging his orphan boys in a game of 'King of the Hill', a few seconds later he was dethroned." One boy stands apart from the group as he looks straight into the camera.; Rev. Flick was born in Oswego, NY. After studying for two years at St. Michael's College in Toronto, he entered The Venard, Maryknoll's Apostolic College in 1929, and was ordained at Maryknoll, New York in 1935. He was assigned that year to Fushun. In 1942 he was repatriated aboard the refugee ship Gripsholm. After a 3-year furlough working in the St. Augustine, FL diocese, he worked in Maryknoll's Bedford minor seminary. In 1947 he returned to Manchuria. When the Fushun mission had to be abandoned he was assigned to Kweilin (Guilin). In 1950 he returned to the U.S.
