Fr. Eric (web).JPG(Oregon, OH) Earlier today, the Diocese of Toledo announced that after serving 9 years as the President at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy, the area’s only Pre-K to 12 Catholic School, Fr. Eric Schild has been reassigned to serve as Pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Church and School in Maumee, OH. Fr. Eric succeeds Rev. Keith Stripe, who was announced last month as the incoming pastor at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Oregon.

A 2015 recipient of Toledo’s 20 Under 40 award, Fr. Eric’s impact at Stritch has been felt throughout the community, with significant growth in Catholic identity, community engagement and fundraising. Annual trips to the March for Life in Washington, D.C., summer retreats to Camp CoveCrest in Georgia, and the growth of opportunities for students to grow in their faith daily through Mass, adoration, reconciliation and more are all highlights of his near decade career at Stritch. In 2018, Cardinal Stritch was named a Top Workplace by the Toledo Blade. Fr. Eric is known by students, alumni and parents for his warm personality, signature laugh and sense of humor, all of which helped connect the school community referred to as The Cardinal Family. An unapologetic fundraiser, Fr. Eric’s impact on the school’s financial health is significant as well, successfully completing the school’s largest capital campaign, strengthening the endowment fund, and helping raise nearly $6 million dollars.

In addition to his role at Cardinal Stritch, Fr. Eric Schild also serves as the pastor at St. Jerome in Walbridge.

A community celebration is being scheduled for May 17 at Cardinal Stritch to honor Fr. Eric’s legacy and wish him well at his new parish and school community. Details will be available at the school’s website:

Fr. Eric will address the transition this evening at the Red & Black Gala, the school’s largest fundraiser beginning at 6pm at The Pinnacle in Maumee. He will be available for interviews before 7pm.

The Diocese of Toledo has appointed Fr. Anthony Coci to serve as pastor of St. Jerome and priest leader of Cardinal Stritch.  Fr. Anthony has been a priest for two years and is currently the associate pastor at Tiffin, St. Mary’s. He served as a substitute teacher at Cardinal Stritch during the 2009-2010 school year!

Please join us as we pray for all priests, parishes and institutions who are going through transition.
