St. Mary Church
Welcome Fr. Jacob Willig!!
Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr has decided that Catholic Campus Ministry requires the services of a full-time priest chaplain. We will welcome Fr. Jacob Willig as Chaplain for the Miami University Newman Center effective July 1, 2021. Fr. Jeff will continue as pastor of St. Mary Parish.
Fr. Willig has been ordained for three years and up until now has been serving as Parochial Vicar of the pastoral region of St. Margaret-St. John Parish, St. Anthony Parish and St. Cecilia Parish, Cincinnati.
One of eight children of David and Janet Willig, Fr. Jacob’s home parish is St. Antoninus Church, in Western Hills. Home schooled through high school, he then attended Thomas More College, worked a few years in finance and then as a handyman before responding to the call to Holy Orders.
Fr. Willig will live at St. Mary rectory and though his primary responsibility is for Miami students we hope to enjoy his participation in parish ministry and events. Welcome, Fr. Jacob!

Reservations will no longer be required for Masses beginning June 5th. We do recommend that if you are not fully vaccinated or are concerned for your safety that you continue to wear a mask. Eucharistic ministers will be required to wear a mask for the foreseeable future.
Despite the lifting of mandatory restrictions, the pandemic is NOT over. Please continue to weigh carefully your own health and the health and welfare of you neighbors! If you have not been vaccinated, please consider taking the vaccine at your earliest convenience. It is safe, effective and free. It is a way of not only stewarding your own health, but also of loving your neighbor.
Please continue to keep the world in your prayers, especially all of those places and communities where illness still rages.
