Welcome to St. Ignatius as Parochial Vicar, Billy Biegler, SJ
Fr. Thomas William (Billy) Biegler, SJ, was born in Sacramento, California. The middle of three boys, Billy met the Jesuits at a young age, developing a fondness for their humor, depth and approachability. A graduate of Jesuit High School in Sacramento, Billy completed his undergraduate degree in philosophy at the University of San Francisco. After undergrad, Billy worked briefly for the San Francisco Opera but returned to Sacramento to work for California Musical Theatre (Sacramento Music Circus). In 2009, Billy entered the Jesuit Novitiate in Culver City, California. He completed first studies in St. Louis, finishing philosophy at Saint Louis University and completing a master’s degree in theatre and performance studies at Washington University. For Regency, Billy worked at Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon, teaching freshman English, freshman Spanish and senior theology. In addition to teaching, Billy led service trips, retreats and a mighty group of freshmen basketball players. For theology, Billy studied at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry and received a Master of Divinity degree. Additionally, he worked at Saint Cecilia Parish in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, serving as spiritual director, RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), instructor and chaplain to the CARES ministry (ministry to the
sick and homebound). After ordination, Billy will serve in Portland at St. Ignatius Parish and help with vocation
promotion. He is deeply grateful to all of those whose love has transformed his journey.
