Marian University Welcomes New Chaplain

by Daniel Conway | Jun 08, 2015

Marian University is happy to announce that Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin, C.S.s.R., Archbishop of Indianapolis, has appointed Father Joseph B. Moriarty as Chaplain at Marian University beginning July 1, 2015. Working closely with Campus Ministry, Fr. Moriarty will serve the sacramental needs of Marian University students, faculty, and staff.  

Marian University is thankful for the work of Fr. Robert Robeson who has served as our Chaplain for five years; a formal event will be held in the fall semester to pay tribute to Fr. Bob and welcome Fr. Joe. 

Fr. Moriarty is a priest of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis who has served in formation work of men for the priesthood for 17 of his 22 years in ministry. While serving in formation work he has also had regular weekend parish assignments, including at St. Paul's Catholic Center at Indiana University for three years.  

Fr. Moriarty is a native of Indianapolis and is the youngest of nine children. He grew up on the east side of Indianapolis (Little Flower Parish and Scecina Catholic High School) and attended St. Meinrad College and Mundelein Seminary. He also earned a master’s degree in spirituality from Creighton University.
