Bio

Father Jan Michael Joncas is an internationally recognized priest, liturgical composer, author, speaker, and professor. From 1980 to 1993, he served as associate pastor, campus minister, and parochial administrator at various parishes and Newman Centers in Minnesota. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a master's in theology and liturgical studies and summa cum laude with degrees in liturgical studies from Pontificio Istituto Liturgico of the Ateneo Sant'Anselmo.

Among other notable works, “Salve Regina,” from O God of Past and Present, is a stunningly beautiful—and challenging—eight-part score for double choir. He has more than 20 collections of liturgical music. He has also published four books, including On Eagle’s Wings: A Journey through Illness toward Healing and more than 100 articles.

The Michael Joncas Hymnary, now includes two volumes: Within Our Hearts Be Born, for Advent and Christmas, and We Contemplate the Mystery, for Lent and Easter. The collections feature original hymn texts set to traditional hymn tunes based on the Lectionary readings for each Sunday and holy day of the season. His songs are also featured on several of OCP's collections, including most recently “God of Might and God of Mercy," which appears on Our Common Home, a collaborate project based on Pope Francis' Laudato Si' encyclical.

Father Joncas is currently Artist in Residence and Research Fellow in Catholic Studies at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.
