Bio

†Father Willard Jabusch (1930–2018) attended Loyola University, Chicago, receiving a master’s in English, and Northwestern University, receiving a doctorate in performance studies. He expanded his education as a composer at the Chicago Conservatory. He was ordained in the Archdiocese of Chicago in 1956. After serving in various Chicago parishes, he taught Homiletics at Mundelein Seminary, Sacred Heart Seminary and Notre Dame University. For 11 years Father Jabusch was Catholic Chaplain at the University of Chicago. He was the director of spiritual formation at the American College, University of Louvain, in Belgium.

Father Jabusch has written four books, as well as articles for America, Commonweal, and the London Tablet. His hymns and songs, including “The King of Glory” and “Whatsoever You Do,” are sung in many languages. The singable hymns reflect the 1960s guitar style that rose to prominence in the years following the Second Vatican Council.

Father Jabusch continued to serve in the Archdiocese of Chicago until his death.
