Jesuit Father James K. Voiss Appointed Rector of Gonzaga Jesuit Community
June 27, 2014 — Jesuit Father Adolfo Nicolás, Superior
General of the Society of Jesus, has appointed Jesuit Father James K. Voiss as
rector of the Gonzaga University Jesuit Community in Spokane, Washington. Fr.
Voiss will succeed current rector Jesuit Father Steve Kuder later this summer.
Fr. Voiss joined Gonzaga in January 2013 as assistant vice
president for mission and has worked since that time in faculty and staff
development as it relates to Gonzaga’s Jesuit mission. He has also written an
upcoming book on Christian forgiveness and taught in Gonzaga’s religious
studies department. In addition to serving as rector, Fr. Voiss will continue
his work with Gonzaga’s Office of Mission.
Previously, Fr. Voiss spent 14 years at Saint Louis
University as an associate professor of theology, teaching both undergraduate
and graduate courses. He holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Gonzaga;
a Master of Divinity degree and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the Weston
School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and both a master’s and a Ph.D.
in theology from the University of Notre Dame.
“I am looking forward to continuing to work and collaborate
with Fr. Voiss. His broad experience and integration into the Gonzaga
University community will serve him well in his new capacity,” Gonzaga
President Thayne McCulloh said. “In addition, I would like to take this
opportunity to thank Fr. Kuder for his active and involved presence and work
over the past six years as rector.” [Source: Gonzaga
