About our Guest Speaker:
FATHER JEREMY MERZWEILER
Fr. Jeremy is currently Administrator of St. Francis de Sales Parish, Akron, Ohio. He previously served as parochial vicar at St. Ambrose Parish, Brunswick, and St. Gabriel Parish, Concord Township.
Being ordained in 2015 for the Diocese of Cleveland, Fr. Jeremy desires to bring people closer to Christ through the lives of the saints and the Eucharist, the greatest gift God can give us.
He enjoys golfing, hiking, camping and most importantly spending time with family. One of his greatest joys is being an uncle.
Fr. Jeremy hopes his talk will encourage all of us to remain hopeful amidst the messiness of life. That through all the ups and downs, Jesus will guide us in our decision making if we simply turn to Him along the way!

HISTORY of Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth Chapter of Magnificat[For the Diocese of Youngstown in Ohio]
Stark County Magnificat Chapter was established December 8, 2000 on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It was licensed officially a chapter by the State of Ohio on August 31, 2001. The first breakfast was held on December 1, 2001 at the Shady Hollow Country Club. Ruthanne Plas was the Foundress of this chapter.
Our Chapter began to hold its breakfasts at Walsh University in North Canton in 2005. The Spiritual name “Mary Queen of Heaven and Earth” was added in 2008.
Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth Chapter held its last breakfast on December 16, 2012. It remained a chapter but was inactive for 2 years. After a lot of prayers and discernment about reactivating the chapter, it was reformed in 2014 under the leadership of Shirley DeOrio.
