Fr. Jordan Berghouse is the Associate Pastor of St. Monica and St. Eugene parishes on the North Shore in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He met co-founder Corinne MacDonald as an undergraduate student doing study abroad in Rome, Italy. His love for Poland, John Paul II, and Our Lady of Czestochowa was nurtured during his pilgrimage to Poland that Corinne had organized and led years before the JP2 Project existed. Fr. Jordan completed his degree in politics from Ave Maria University, worked in Washington D.C for a few years, and then made the bold move to change course and join seminary in 2014.

We are thrilled to welcome this priest, in love with his vocation, as our chaplain for our first Come & See Pilgrimage. In Fr. Jordan’s words, “I am consistently in awe that God has called me to this beautiful life. I’ve been personally inspired by the last three popes and my prayer is to be open and docile to whatever it is that the Lord calls me to each day.” Fr. Jordan enjoys being outdoors and good, long conversations over a cup of coffee or a beer… which we look forward to enjoying with him in Krakow.
