Fr. Jason C Hage

Father Jason Hage grew up in Brockport, NY and was a serious hockey player in high school, winning the New York State title his junior year. He attended Xavier University in Cincinnati and earned his Bachelor’s in Philosophy. Upon graduation from Xavier, he entered St. Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore, MD and earned his Master’s of Divinity as well as his Sacred Bachelor’s in Theology.

Fr. Hage spent the first three years of his priestly ministry at Holy Family Church in Syracuse, where he worked intensely with the youth and young adult ministry programs. In 2015, Bishop Cunningham appointed Fr. Hage the coordinator of “Fisherman’s Club”, the diocesan outreach to college-age men discerning the priesthood. In 2017, Fr. Hage was appointed pastor of St. Mary’s Church in Hamilton, St. Joan of Arc Mission in Morrisville, with sacramental responsibilities at Colgate University’s Newman Community.

Deacon Olkowski
Parish Minister
(315) 724-3155

In 2017, Stan attended a deacon informational seminar and soon "realized that something transformative had occurred in my life. I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and realized that the diaconate was the plan that God had for me."

Stan takes his inspiration from the members of his parish family at Mary Mother of Our Savior, “who continue to support, encourage and pray for me.” Stan will continue to be involved in bereavement ministry at the parish, both the Utica and New Hartford campuses, and looks forward to an expanded role in nursing home ministry at St. Luke’s Home.

Our Finance Committee

Our Finance Committee is chaired by Fr. Jason Hage. This consultative body is composed of those appointed parishioners who have demonstrated an expertise in finance.

The body consults and advises our Pastor with respect to items such as the annual budget, financial reporting, long-term financial planning, debt and debt management, high-level expenditures, fund-raising, personnel administration and governmental regulatory matters. The Finance Committee meets monthly.
