Marc Foley, O.C.D.

Marc Foley is a Discalced Carmelite priest. He entered the Carmelites in 1967 as a lay brother. After several years, he discerned a call to ordained ministry, whereupon he began his studies for the priesthood at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., where he earned a B.A. in Psychology, graduated Psi Chi, Phi Beta Kappa and was voted the Outstanding Psychology Major of his graduating class. Continuing his education at Catholic University, he received a Master’s of Divinity. Upon ordination in 1981, he served as assistant pastor for four years in St. Florian’s parish in Milwaukee, WI. He was then transferred to Washington, D.C., where he served as the rector of formation from 1985-1992. During this time he earned a M.S. and CAS in Pastoral Counseling at Loyola College in Columbia, Maryland and was a therapist in private practice at both his residence and the pastoral center at Georgetown University. In 1993, his province decided to move the Carmelite House of Studies to Chicago. Fr. Marc and two other friars were assigned to this task. For the next seven years, he served as formation director and house superior.

Since ordination, he has been involved in giving lectures and retreats throughout the country to both lay and religious groups on the works of St. John of the Cross, St. Thérèse of Lisieux and St. Teresa of Avila.

Currently, he teaches courses on St. John of the Cross and St. Thérèse of Lisieux at the Washington Theological Union in Washington, D.C., gives retreats, does spiritual direction and is an active member of The Institute of Carmelite Studies. Fr. Marc is the author of several books on Carmelite spirituality, including The Love That Keeps us Sane: Living the Little Way of St. Thèrése of Lisieux, A Study Guide of The Story of a Soul by St. Thèrése of Lisieux, John of the Cross: The Ascent to Joy, The Path of Merciful Love: 99 Sayings by St. Thérèse of Lisieux and A Season of Rebirth:Daily Lenten Reflections based upon the Lectionary.
