Rev. Gregory C. Chisholm, S.J. was born in New York City where he attended Catholic schools. In his continuous pursuit of education, he achieved bachelor and master of science degrees, plus a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy and theology (S.T.L.) from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was ordained a priest of the Society of Jesus in 1993 as a member of the New England Province. After his ordination, Father Chisholm served as an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Detroit Mercy from 1994 to 1998, and specialized in Engineering Vibration and Dynamics with consulting work at General Motors.
Although Father Chisholm is a native of Harlem, most of his ministerial service has taken place in African American and Latino communities in Detroit, Los Angeles and Oakland. After his time at University of Detroit Mercy, from 1998 to 2005, Father Chisholm was full time parish administrator at Holy Name of Jesus Church, a strong and diverse Roman Catholic community in Los Angeles. He then served as a pastor in Oakland, California for five years. His focused interests include theologies of liberation and the history of black Catholics. He serves on the governing boards of Cristo Rey New York High School and Xavier High School. Father Chisholm is a 4th degree member of the Knights of St. Peter Claver.
Coming full circle, Father Chisholm was appointed pastor of St. Charles Borromeo/Resurrection Chapel in Harlem in 2011 by Archbishop Timothy Dolan. He is the first member of a religious order to lead this Archdiocesan parish. Father Chisholm is honored to have lived his Jesuit life in service as Pastor to several Catholic communities of color throughout our country.
