Nearly 12 years after entering the Society of Jesus, Christopher Staab, S.J. '95, was ordained a Jesuit priest by Cardinal Blase Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, on June 3, 2017, at Church of the Gesu in Milwaukee. Eleven other Jesuits were ordained with Fr. Staab at the Mass.
“As I embrace this call to serve God and His Church as a priest in the Society of Jesus, I am moved to profound gratitude,” said Fr. Staab. “I am grateful to God for continuing to call me, walk with me, and show me great joy in being a friend and companion to so many.”
Staab's first encounter with the Jesuits was as a student at Saint Ignatius and his connectinos with the Society only deepened at John Carroll University.
