The Miami University community is mourning the recent loss of beloved local pastor, Father Chris Coleman. He graduated from the Miami Paper Science program in 1990 and entered the paper industry. He continued his education to get an MBA at Xavier in 2000. Ultimately, however, he found his calling in a very different field and was ordained a priest in 2006. He was the pastor of three local churches—St. Matthias Roman Catholic Church, St. James of the Valley, and Our Lady of the Rosary. Funeral services will be held on Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m. at Cincinnati’s Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains.
