Father Jeremy Freehill

Augie Catholic Chaplain

Farther Jeremy Freehill joined the Augustana Campus Community in 2016.

One of four boys, he grew up in Tremont, IL. He graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Winona, MN in 2009 with a BA in Philosophy and in 2013 graduated from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, MD with an MA and Masters of Divinity in Theology.

He was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ on May 25, 2013 and began his priestly service within the Church at Saint Pius X Parish in Rock Island and Jordan Catholic School.

He also spent a number of years as chaplain of Alleman Catholic High School in Rock Island from 2014-2018.

A vocation to the priesthood is not the result of a miraculous or extraordinary call, but rather the blossoming of a Christian soul that is attached to its Creator and Savior Jesus Christ by an exclusive love and shares His thirst to save souls.
