Hi there!

Father Jacob Maurer (Nov., 2010)

My name is Father Jacob Maurer and you seem to have stumbled across my blog- welcome! I’m glad you’ve stopped in.

I’m a priest of the archdiocese of Seattle, currently pastor of four Catholic communities – 3 parishes, and a mission – in Lewis county. I can usually be found at the Saint Joseph parish office in Chehalis, but calling ahead never goes wrong!1

I am the son of two amazing parents, the eldest of five siblings and most recently (2016 & 2018) a proud uncle of my nephews. I was ordained a priest on the feast of Saint Anthony of Padua (June 13) at Saint James Cathedral by Archbishop Brunett in 2009 and have served in Tacoma & Olympia prior to my current assignment.

This blog serves as a collection of reflections, thoughts and occasionally good-humored silliness that would otherwise only exist in my head. I know, I know: you’re welcome. As the title says, this is a project borne and fed in my free time – it’s probably best to keep expectations low! Nonetheless, come by anytime. Hopefully we’ll inspire each other, enjoy a piece of fraternity and grow in holiness.


Fr. Maurer
