Jesuit Father Raymond P. Guiao to Lead Saint Ignatius High School

December 19, 2014 — Jesuit Father Raymond P. Guiao, current Assistant to the Provincial for Formation with the Chicago-Detroit Province Jesuits, has been chosen as the 26th president of Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland. Fr. Guiao will take over from current president, Jesuit Father William J. Murphy, on July 1, 2015.

“I am honored to mission Fr. Raymond Guiao, SJ, to serve as the next president of Saint Ignatius High School,” said Jesuit Father Brian Paulson, Provincial of the Chicago-Detroit Province. “Fr. Guiao is first and foremost a great priest-educator — a proven leader known for his deep faith, high ideals, and boundless energy.”

Born and raised in Cleveland, Fr. Guiao graduated from Saint Ignatius in 1982. After college, he entered the Jesuits in 1986, was ordained to the priesthood in June 1999, and pronounced final vows in 2009.

Fr. Guiao has held his position with the Chicago-Detroit Province Jesuits since 2008. In addition to his theological studies he completed as a Jesuit, he received a bachelor’s degree in English from Case Western Reserve University and holds additional bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music. He was a faculty member in both English and theology at Saint Ignatius from 1992 to 1995, returning in 2000 to teach theology and to direct the choral and liturgical music programs. Fr. Guiao also served for two years as the interim vice president for Ignatian mission at Saint Ignatius and serves on the boards of trustees for Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, and St. Martin de Porres High School in Cleveland.

Regarding his new position, Fr. Guiao said, “I am deeply honored to be named by the Board of Regents to be the next president of Saint Ignatius High School. My own vocation to Jesuit priesthood was formed back when I was a student at Saint Ignatius in the early 1980s. Like so many alumni of our school, I feel I owe a lot to Saint Ignatius High School. So, I’m thrilled that I can make some return by serving as the school’s next president.” [Source: Saint Ignatius High School
