The parish is the spiritual center of my life; it is here that I receive the 'food for life's journey.' Father Godderz has brought us to a Golden Age in our mutual life."

Father Jarvis grew up in St. James' Parish in Painesville, Ohio, and he was ordained to the diaconate in 1964 at Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland and to the priesthood in 1965 at St. Paul's Parish in Cleveland Heights where he directed a city-wide youth program for seven years.

After Father Jarvis "retired" at 65 in 2004, he served twice as a chaplain and master at Eton College in England, and as scholar-in-residence at schools in Australia and South Africa. In 2008 he was asked to come to the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale to create the Educational Leadership and Ministry Program. He served as director of this program for eight years, 2008-2016.

He is the author of seven books and numerous articles in the fields of history, education, and religion. His book, With Love and Prayers, a collection of 40 addresses to students, won the Christopher Award.
