Michael Moynahan, SJ: Brief Bio
Fr. Mike Moynahan was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduating from the Jesuit High School (Brophy College Prep), he entered the Jesuits in the then California Province (1962).
Fr. Mike’s first contact with the beauty of the Northwest came when he studied philosophy in Spokane (1966-68). He studied theology in Berkeley, CA (1970-73) and was ordained in Phoenix. His first assignment was as Assistant Director of Novices in the California Province (1973-76).
While completing doctoral studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, he taught at the Jesuit School of Theology for seven years (1976-1983). He also taught in the Religious Studies Departments of Santa Clara University (1985-1996) and Gonzaga University (1996-2008).
In 2009, he was asked by his Provincial to become pastor of St. Ignatius Parish in Sacramento. He served in this position for twelve years and learned from the parishioners how to be a good and effective pastoral presence.
Fr. Mike loves theater, poetry and the arts—all of which find a way into his preaching sooner or later. His current favorite poets are retired Methodist pastor Steve Garnaas-Holmes, Mary Oliver and David Whyte who lives in the Seattle area.
He believes that the best kept secret in the Society of Jesus is the Spiritual Exercises. He looks for ways to share this treasure with the people he serves. He is particularly happy to know that St. Ignatius Parish in Portland has a School. In Sacramento, the First Graders were his Council of Wisdom.
Fr. Mike is grateful for the opportunity to return to the Northwest and St. Ignatius Parish in Portland.
