Bio

Fr. Jan Michael Joncas is an internationally recognized priest, liturgical composer, author, speaker and professor. Ordained in 1980, he has served as an associate pastor, campus minister and parochial administrator at various parishes and Newman Centers in Minnesota. From 1987 to 2022 he taught in the theology and Catholic studies departments at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a master's degree in theology and liturgical studies and summa cum laude from Pontificio Istituto Liturgico of the Ateneo Sant'Anselmo in Rome with licentiate and doctoral degrees in liturgical studies.

Fr. Joncas has composed more than 20 collections of liturgical music. Among other notable works, “Salve Regina,” from O God of Past and Present, is a stunningly beautiful—and challenging—eight-part score for double choir. He has also published six books, including On Eagle’s Wings: A Journey through Illness toward Healing, and more than 100 articles.

The Michael Joncas Hymnary presently includes two volumes: Within Our Hearts Be Born, for Advent and Christmas, and We Contemplate the Mystery, for Lent and Easter. These collections feature original hymn texts set to traditional hymn tunes based on the Lectionary readings for each Sunday and holy day of the season. His songs are also featured on several of OCP's collections, including most recently “God of Might and God of Mercy," which appears on Our Common Home, a collaborative project based on Pope Francis' Laudato Si' encyclical.

On January 1, 2022, Fr. Joncas retired from active ministry in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota and as professor emeritus from the University of St. Thomas. He continues to preach and preside sacramentally in various parishes and worshiping communities, teach in person and online, write articles and blog posts, and compose liturgical music.
