Remembering Fr. John Haughey, SJ, beloved pastor, professor and researcher

Rev. John C. Haughey, SJ, was born in White Plains, NY, on September 27, 1930. He soon moved to Philadelphia and attended St. Thomas More High School, entering the Novitiate of St. Isaac Jogues in Wernersville, Pa. in 1948. He received a Licentiate in Philosophy from Bellarmine College, a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from Woodstock College and a Doctor of Sacred Theology from the Catholic University of America. He was ordained a priest on June 18, 1961.

Following ordination, Fr. Haughey taught theology at Georgetown University until 1969 when he began work as an assistant editor at America Magazine, the national Jesuit Catholic periodical. In 1974, he became a research associate at the Woodstock Theological Center in Washington DC, where he served for ten years. He then served Seton Hall University for two years as a visiting professor of theology.

In 1986, Fr. Haughey became superior and pastor at St. Peter Church in Charlotte, NC, serving the parish for four years. He then spent six years teaching business ethics at Loyola University Chicago and subsequent stints at John Carroll University and Marquette University, teaching religious studies and theology, respectively. In 2004, he returned to the Woodstock Theological Center where he served for nine years as a visiting fellow.

Fr. Haughey is the author of ten books, including Virtue and Affluence and Converting Nine to Five: A Spirituality of Daily Work. He moved to the Colombiere Jesuit community in Baltimore in 2013, praying for the Church and the Society of Jesus. He passed away on December 5, 2019 at the age of 89.

John was a wonderful person whose quick wit and intellect were a gift to everyone who knew him. His book A Biography of the Spirit will be re-read this year in his honor. John celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary for us and we will be ever grateful.
