Father Anthony Geraci
Rev. Anthony J. Geraci is the current pastor of St. Paul Catholic Church in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and St. Charles in South Charleston, Ohio. He arrived July 1, 2008, and is entering his fifth year of ministry at St. Paul's Church. He was ordained in May, 1975, at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral by Archbishop Bernadin, who became Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago, Illinois, in 1982.
Fr. Geraci received his undergraduate training at St. Gregory College Seminary of the Athenaeum of Ohio, ending with a B.A. in 1970. He received a scholarship to pursue a graduate degree in American History at Xavier University, Cincinnati. and received an M.A. in American History in 1971. His theology degree from Mt. St. Mary Theologate of the Athenaeum of Ohio M.Div. was received in 1975. He studied at Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., and received a graduate degree in Liturgical Theology, M.A. in 1978, and received his Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary of Dayton in 1989.
While pursuing these degrees, he maintained pastoral positions, serving as a parochial vicar (associate pastor) in diocesan parishes from 1975-1987. In March of 1987, he became pastor of St. Mary of the Woods, Indian Lake, Russells Point, Ohio, where he remained for 11½ years. He had the experience of successfully renovating the church there and adding administrative offices, meeting spaces, and lavatories. Three buildings were leveled and new parking space provided. Trees were planted throughout.
In July of 1998, he accepted the pastorate at Immaculate Conception Church, Dayton, Ohio, and remained there for 10 years. The roof of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception was replaced during his tenure, as were the boilers with the air conditioner compressor. The school faculty and staff were reconformed for downsizing adaptation. Immaculate Conception Church provided the space necessary for diocesan and episcopal functions which were celebrated seasonally, or as directed. Father Geraci has taught in the R.C.I.A. since the program's inception and since his ordination to the priesthood in 1975 (original directives from Rome issued in 1972).
In July, 2008, he assumed the duties of pastor at St. Paul Catholic Church and St. Charles Catholic Church concurrently. The R.C.I.A. has been taught by Fr. Geraci at St. Paul's since his arrival. The R.C.I.A. sessions at St. Paul's are held in the church undercroft at 6pm on Sunday. Sessions are conducted throughout the year except in July.
Fr. Geraci is a thoroughly imbued pastoral person with a penchant for scholarship. He is also a practical musician, having served in parishes before ordination as an organist and choral leader. His experience includes playing the organ at both seminaries as well as playing the cathedral organ on several occasions at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in Cincinnati.
Father Geraci particularly loves the interplay of life passage and the liturgy of the Church. "The story and events of life are all there in the celebrations, scripture, and theology of the Catholic Church. He lectures from time to time, upon request
Fr. Geraci was trained as a practical liturgical organist at age sixteen. Later, at the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., he was trained in liturgical theology, 1977-1978, ending with the M.A. He takes care to train the servers and ministers for special and seasonal celebrations and is very appreciative of their help. He monitors religious education sessions of the children, the Education Commission, and is active in the Worship/Liturgy Commission. In the years since his ordination (1975), 29 years have been spent as a pastor.
Fr. Geraci served the Presbyteral Council of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati from 1991-2008. He served the Springfield Deanery, 1987-1998, and again in 2008, and currently. He served on the Northern Diocesan Commission on Religious Education, Sidney Office, 1989-1996, and the Priestly Life Committee, 1989-2008. He served and attended the Dayton Deanery from 1998-2008, and currently 2013 - on.
Before his ordination and while serving as a liturgical organist, Fr. Geraci helped introduce the first rounds of vernacular music, 1965-1974. He particularly served St. Matthew Church, and in the summers, St. Francis Xavier Jesuit Church, both located in Cincinnati. Currently Fr. Geraci attends meetings for pastors with several parishes. They are held quarterly in Dayton. He also participates in the inter parish pastoral council meetings of St. Brigid, Xenia; St. Augustine, Jamestown; and St. Paul, Yellow Springs. The three parishes are "Regionalized," having a "Regional Relationship" for the sake of future planning for each parish. St. Charles Borromeo of South Charleston, Fr. Geraci's second church, has a "Regional Relationship" with St. Joseph/St. Raphael, Springfield.
Fr. Geraci supervises marriage preparation, and he directs marriage annulments, as needed. He celebrates the baptism of infants and children under seven years of age. Children over seven will receive special preparatory attention through the P.S.R. (Parish School of Religion). Catechumens and candidates receive preparation in the R.C.I.A. with Fr. Geraci as celebrant at the Easter Vigil.
Fr. Geraci anoints the sick and dying at St. Paul and St. Charles. Each Wednesday evening mass, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and Dying is offered to those parishioners seeking particular healing due to their physical/psychological conditions. He also assists St. Brigid from time to time for hospital anointings, funerals and weekday masses.
Funerals are celebrated by Fr. Geraci at St. Paul or St. Charles, preceded by a planning session with Father and with burial at St. Paul Cemetery or St. Charles Cemetery.

Controversy reared its head at St. Paul Catholic Church in the spring, when Father Anthony Geraci delivered in his homily what some perceived as a comparison between the Obama administration and Nazi Germany, around the issue of a federal proposal that would require religious institutions to include contraceptives in their health insurance coverage for employees.
