Immaculate Conception Church celebrated the 35th anniversary of the ordination of Father Jonathan Wight on Monday June, 7. The celebration began with a Mass said by Father Jon in the Extraordinary Form, meaning a Mass said in traditional Latin.
An amazing parking lot party followed.
Father Jonathan Wight became Pastor of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on July 1, 2020. Father Wight’s arrival is especially sweet as he is a son of the parish. Father Jonathan was born and raised in Port Clinton and attended Immaculate Conception Church and School throughout his youth.
Father Jonathan was ordained in 1986 at Immaculate Conception Church and served as associate pastor at St. Peter’s Mansfield, and then went to St. Paul’s in Norwalk. In both places he taught in their high schools full time.
He then became the associate at Christ the King in Toledo. While at Christ the King, he taught at St. Francis de Sales High School part-time for 14 years. He then traveled to become pastor at St. Hyacinth’s, Toledo and All Saints in Rossford.
Until his arrival “home” in Port Clinton, Father Jonathan spent 12 years in Bellevue at Immaculate Conception Church.
