Speaker Biography

Father Patrick J. Conroy, S.J., has served as the 60th Chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives since 2011.  He opens the House session each day with prayer and offers Members of Congress a ministry of prayer, presence and service.  Fr. Conroy offers prayers at official Congressional functions and other events, welcomes guest chaplains who come from congressional districts around the country to offer the opening prayer, visits with clergy and parliamentarians from around the world who are interested in legislative chaplaincy, and speaks to school groups and others about his role as Chaplain.

Fr. Conroy holds an M.A. in Philosophy from Gonzaga University, a J.D. from St. Louis University, a M.Div. from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, and an STM from Regis College of the University of Toronto in Missiology.  He entered the Oregon Province of the Jesuit Order in 1973 and practiced law for the Colville Confederated Tribes in Omak, Washington and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops representing Salvadoran refugees in San Francisco.  After his ordination in 1983, he pastored four villages on the Colville and Spokane Indian Reservations, and then worked for the national Jesuit Office of Social Ministries in Washington, D.C. He has held chaplaincies at Georgetown University and Seattle University and has taught freshman theology and coached girls’ softball at Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon.
