Bio

Jesuit Father John Foley is a liturgical and classical composer, theologian, liturgist and writer. He has a gift for taking timeless truths, drawn from Scripture, re-crafting them into poetry and setting them to timeless melodies. For more than 40 years, this gift has given voice to the prayer and worship of Christian communities around the world. Father Foley has a doctorate in liturgical theology from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, as well as master’s degrees in philosophy and fundamental theology.

Some of his most familiar hymns are included in liturgical collections of the St. Louis Jesuits such as A Dwelling Place, Let Heaven Rejoice and Morning Light. In 2015, OCP released the 40th anniversary edition of Earthen Vessels, the group's best-selling second album. And in the fall of 2017, OCP celebrated the 40th anniversary of their classic Christmas album, Gentle Night, with a beautifully remixed and remastered commemorative edition.

His classic songs for worship appear in major Catholic and Protestant hymnals internationally, in every modern language. He is also the editor of The Heart of Our Music, a three-volume series of books with essays on liturgy and ministry (Liturgical Press), and his articles have appeared widely.

Father Foley lectures across the country on liturgical music and the spirituality of liturgy. He also founded the Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University, a national think tank for studying and teaching the liturgy. He was Director of the Center from 1993–2011. He now is the Editor in Chief of the Saint Louis University Sunday Web Site, a very popular weekly review of Sunday’s liturgical readings from several dozen different perspectives (liturgy.slu.edu).
