Retreat Master:


Fr. Ron Bieganowski, SJ

Teaching undergraduates at Marquette University has been Fr. Ronald Bieganowski’s major work since 1976, and he states that “it's been a wonderful experience.”  He’s regularly taught a two-semester survey of American Literature along with sections of the First Year Writing course and upper divisions courses such as "American Literature from 1798 - 1865," "The Poetry of Robert Frost," "Catholic Imagination in Recent American Writing," and "Recent Midwest Writings." Specific research has been on Robert Frost, Edgar Allan Poe, and James Baldwin.

Over the past several years, he has given retreats at the Jesuit Retreat Houses on the shores of Lake Winnebago and Lake Demontreville, near St. Paul. In 2007, he began to serve as Chaplain to the College of Business.  In addition to offering invocations and reflections on various occasions, he is also on call for special needs. Fr. Bieganowski says that these many years have meant experiencing what the Frost poem describes as uniting "My avocation and my vocation/ as my two eyes make one in sight."
