Welcome to our new LAOH State Chaplain for Michigan, Fr. Tim McCabe!
Father Timothy M. McCabe, SJ, 52, is a native of Ferndale, Mich., where he and his three sisters were raised by their parents, Mary Patricia (Cassin) and William McCabe. From a young age, Fr. McCabe was drawn to the poor and marginalized and immersed himself in social justice issues. He was actively involved in the Catholic Worker Movement and Detroit peace community, worked as director of a refugee resettlement project, repaired houses for Detroit’s inner-city poor, served meals in a soup kitchen, and made a humanitarian aid mission to El Salvador, where he met the Jesuits. After earning a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Detroit Mercy, he served as the Jesuit Volunteer Corps’ Midwest director. After years of discernment, he joined the Jesuits in 2005.
Father McCabe studied philosophy at Loyola University Chicago and obtained a Master of Divinity degree from the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in Berkeley, Calif., while also serving as a deacon at St. Agnes Catholic Church in San Francisco. As a Jesuit, Fr. McCabe also worked in a hospice for the homeless in San Francisco, served as development director at Loyola High School in Detroit, and worked in Chicago with the Ignatian Spirituality Project, which offers retreats to homeless women and men. One aspect of his life that informs and inspires his ministry is being a father to his daughter, Mary. Father McCabe and Mary, who received a law degree from Fordham University with a focus on international law and human rights, enjoy a close relationship and share a love for Ignatian spirituality and passion for social justice. He will serve as associate pastor and director of the Warming Center at Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church in Detroit.
I am profoundly grateful to God and the Society of Jesus for the gift of this life. None of this would be possible without a loving and supportive family and countless friends who have inspired and encouraged me along the way. My Jesuit priesthood is about being of service to others, and I humbly offer it with great joy and wholehearted gratitude.
