Michael Viator

Director of Faith Formation

Hello! I am the Director of Faith Formation here at St. Mary. I am 24 yrs old and the oldest of five boys with only the youngest still at home.

I graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor's degree in Theology and Religious Studies from John Carroll University. I also attended and completed four years of priestly formation at Borromeo Seminary for the Diocese of Cleveland in Wickliffe, Ohio. Those four years at the seminary and John Carroll have been foundational for me as I venture into ministry and parish life.

Growing up I liked a variety of topics but mostly enjoyed music through concert band and later in the high school marching band. I am still a big fan of marching band which I express in following Drum Corps International or DCI. My favorite corps is the Bluecoats from Canton, Ohio. I am also a fan of our local sports teams: Cleveland Browns, Indians, Cavaliers and the Monsters. I also root for the Ohio State Buckeyes!

I am so excited to be on this journey with all of you and I can't wait to meet you all!  God Bless you!
