June 5, 2014 — Jesuit Father Scott Lewis has been appointed as Dean of Regis College, the Jesuit School of Theology at the University of Toronto, where he has taught for the past decade. Fr. Lewis began his five-year term on May 1.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Fr. Lewis served in the U.S. Navy from 1966 to 1973 and the U.S. Navy Reserve from 1974 to 1976. He entered the California Province of the Society of Jesus in 1979 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1987.

He received his doctorate in sacred theology from the Gregorian University in Rome.

While a member of the Regis faculty, Fr. Lewis also served as director of the Manresa Jesuit Spiritual Renewal Centre in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. For more than 10 years, his weekly Gospel reflection, “God’s Word on Sunday,” has been published in The Catholic Register.  [Sources: Regis College, The Catholic Register]
