Resident Jesuit Staff
Rev. Paul Brian Campbell, S.J.
Born in Belfast, Paul joined the Irish Jesuits in 1974. After novitiate and undergraduate studies in Dublin, he was sent to France to study Philosophy.
He then went to Japan where he studied the language for two years before teaching in a high school for another two years. Four years of Theology followed, and after ordination Paul spent several months helping out in a parish in Yamaguchi, the town where Francis Xavier landed in the 16th Century.
In 1989, he came to the United States for a Ph.D. in Communications. He then taught at Le Moyne College, Syracuse, NY for many years. In 2006, after a couple of years as VP of Loyola Productions in Los Angeles, he was missioned to Loyola Press in Chicago, initially as VP for Mission, Identity and Online Community Building. From 2010 until 2016, he served as Publisher of Loyola Press.
In 2016, he moved to Holy Trinity Parish in Washington, D.C. where he served as Associate Pastor. In 2020, he came to Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown, NJ.
Rev. Steve Pugliese, S.J.
Fr. Steve Pugliese, S.J. grew up in Smithtown, Long Island. He went to Fordham University for college. He was a junior officer in the Navy before entering the Society of Jesus, home port Jacksonville, FL. Fr. Steve entered the Society of Jesus in 1983 and was ordained at Fordham in 1993. He spent his first year after ordination at Mt. Manresa retreat house on Staten Island after which he was asked to go to the Jesuit parish St. Ignatius in Brooklyn where he spent seven years. He spent six years as minister to the NY Province Infirmary in the Bronx and three years on the Upper East Side at the St. Ignatius Loyola community. Fr. Steve has been at Loyola since September 2011 and serves as retreat master and spiritual director.
Rev. Kirk Reynolds, S.J.
Fr. Kirk Reynolds is a native of Bergenfield, NJ, where he went to Catholic grammar school at St. John’s. He has spent most of his ordained life between parish work and retreat work. His parish work consisted of five years at Nativity parish, a predominantly Hispanic parish on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and eight years in a Jesuit parish in Oceanside, NY, where he served as pastor for seven of those eight years.
Fr. Kirk spent two years at St. Ignatius Retreat House in Manhasset, NY involved in retreat work and giving spiritual direction. He has been at Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown, NJ since 2000 where he continues his retreat work and spiritual direction in both English and Spanish, as he is fluent in Spanish. He learned Spanish while in different assignments in Puerto Rico, Bolivia, and Spain during his years of Jesuit formation.
Fr. Reynolds graduated from Regis High School in NYC. He has a Master’s of Divinity (MDiv) from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley (CA) and a Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) from Columbia University, NYC.
Rev. Tom Marciniak, S.J.
Born in Brooklyn, New York of William and Victoria Marciniak, I grew up as a Polish Catholic boy attending elementary school taught by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. My eighth grade teacher, Sr. Mary Generosa, had quietly arranged with Fr. Headmaster at Brooklyn Prep (the Jesuit High School in Brooklyn which closed in the early 1970s) that I would spend my high school years with the Jesuits. Need more be said?
I entered the Society of Jesus after high school at St. Andrew-on-Hudson with undergraduate studies at Loyola Seminary in Shrub Oak, New York and Fordham University. For regency I was asked to teach at Xavier High School – not on the island of Manhattan but rather in the far flung islands of Micronesia. I had seen a film of the Jesuit work in the Caroline-Marshall Islands during my high school years and immediately began my discernment about where I would do my regency! Would you believe?
I loved my three years as a regent teaching and also learning about the peoples, languages and cultures of the Pacific Islands. After theology studies and ordination in 1976 I returned to Micronesia as a priest and ministered there until 1991.
I returned to the States to do retreat ministry in Morristown, New Jersey and also began to care for my aging parents. I was involved in Campus Ministry work at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York from 1993-2006. I then was assigned to Fordham as Minister at Loyola Hall until 2012 when we moved over to Murray-Weigel-Kohlmann. Besides the usual work of caring for the temporal needs of the community, I was blessed by accompanying our older brothers along the path of their physical diminishment, death and returning the gift of their lives to the Holy Mystery of God who promises eternal life and joy in the Resurrection.
This past academic year I have been on sabbatical. As 2016 comes to a close, I will begin a new ministry at the Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown, New Jersey where I will dedicate my remaining years and pastoral energy in service of Christ’s mission.
This 50-year journey would not have been possible without the love, encouragement, company and prayers of so many friends in the Lord and my family. Deo Gratias for the adventure of my life in the Society of Jesus. I look forward on tiptoe of expectation to meeting more of God’s People through my new ministry here at Loyola Jesuit Center.
