Father Donald McGuire

Father Daniel McCormack Father Donald McGuire worked as a teacher at the Jesuit's Loyola Academy in Chicago and as a prolific retreat master. He gave retreats for aspiring diocesan priests, and for many years was spiritual director for the Carmelite Sisters and the Missionaries of Charity, whose leader and founder, Mother Theresa, selected McGuire to be her confessor. Through his Mission FIDES organization, McGuire organized and led Ignatian retreats for lay people. He collaborated with EWTN in the early 1980s and was chaplain of the National Federation of Catholic Physicians in the early to mid-1990s. Father Donald McGuire preyed upon his students and upon boys in the devout families who attended and funded his Ignatian retreats, especially ones who acted as his personal assistants.

The Father Donald McGuire cases are significant for many reasons: for the number of his victims; for the duration and severity of the abuse; for the callous dishonesty of the Jesuit order in ignoring complaints; for McGuire's arrogant manipulation of Catholic families' faith and trust; and for his national and international travels while abusing his victims, which has resulted in an indictment for "traveling in interstate and foreign commerce for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act with a minor."
