Daniel R. Corrou, S.J., 44, hails from Saratoga Springs, New York. He first met the Jesuits as a student at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. While earning a bachelor’s degree in religious studies, Corrou was immediately taken with the Jesuits’ combination of intellectual depth and commitment to social justice. Excited by their spirituality, he served for two years at a Jesuit school in Micronesia with Jesuit Volunteers International (JVI) following his 1994 graduation. Returning to the U.S., Corrou earned a master’s degree in theological studies at Harvard Divinity School and then worked on a trading desk for Fidelity Investments for two years before taking a job in Washington, D.C., with JVI based at Georgetown University. After three years at Georgetown, he assumed a new role in campus ministry at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. After discerning his call to the priesthood through many years of lay service, Corrou entered the Society of Jesus in 2007. As a novice, he served at Cheverus High School in Portland, Maine, and in Belize for several months. Missioned next to Heythrop College at the University of London, he earned a master’s degree in philosophy and then studied Arabic for one year in Beirut, Lebanon, while working at a Jesuit high school. During his second year in the Middle East, he worked in campus ministry at Saint Joseph University in Beirut. By that point, Syrian refugees had started pouring into Lebanon, and Corrou spent his last year overseas working with Jesuit Refugee Service as director of their Beirut program. Missioned next to the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, Corrou earned a Licentiate in Sacred Theology while working as a deacon at St. Mary of the Angels Church in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and in campus ministry at Tufts University and Boston College. After ordination, Corrou will spend a year at St. Francis Xavier Church in New York City. His first Mass as a priest will be celebrated at his home parish of St. Clement’s Church in Saratoga Springs.
