Fr. Gregory J. Ostdiek, SJ

Born: July 19, 1969

Entered Society: August 29, 2009

As a Jesuit: Fr. Ostdiek taught high school physics at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Ill., and has been a transitional deacon at St. Peter’s Parish in Cambridge, Mass.

Assignment Following Ordination: Harvard University Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, Mass. to complete a master’s degree in educational administration.

As I reflect upon my ordination to the priesthood and on the past ten years of my Jesuit formation, I am grateful to God for the gift of my vocation; grateful to my family for supporting me in this vocation choice; grateful to my friends, especially the ones I have made while a Jesuit, for sustaining me during my vocation training; and grateful to the benefactors of the Society of Jesus for making all of my formation financially possible. As I look forward to starting this new phase of my life as a priest, I thank everyone with whom I have served in ministry for the example that they have given to me of their own faith and vocation, and I look forward to contributing to the work that they have already begun.
