Fr. Ganz Leads Retreat at St. Pius Church

Fr. Rick Ganz, SJ, vice president for community relations and faculty member at Marylhurst University, gave a retreat at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Beaverton.

The five-day retreat, held February 25-29, 2012, was on the theme of Catholicism: the Catholic Way of Being Christ-like in the World. Two hundred people from the parish attended each day.


From 1997 to 2003, Fr. Ganz was a religion teacher, campus minister and retreat leader at Jesuit High School. From there he helped direct the Jesuit and Catholic mission of Gonzaga University, with particular attention to the spiritual formation of students, Catholic and otherwise. Since June 2009, he has been missioned to teach and to help on the leadership team at Marylhurst University, and he serves on the theological faculty at Mount Angel Seminary and is a spiritual director of seminarians. His many years of advanced studies have been focused in scripture, philosophy, modern and ancient languages, Jesuit spirituality, early Christian theology, etc. His life-long interest is teaching adults how to find and to understand their spiritual path, and that in relation to their religion, their families, and their work world.
