Katie Davis is passionate about spirituality, social justice, and the arts. Hailing from the Philadelphia area, she earned a Bachelor of Music degree in musical theatre at The Catholic University of America. As a Jesuit Volunteer living in intentional community, Katie served as the drama teacher and campus minister at Cristo Rey Jesuit in Houston, followed by several years of parish youth ministry in Cicero, IL through the JVC Magis program. Katie earned her M.Div. at Loyola University Chicago and has worked as a chaplain and religious studies teacher at St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago since 2012.
Katie cherishes volunteering with the Ignatian Spirituality Project and with Harmony, Hope and Healing, building relationships with people experiencing homelessness through retreats and music. Katie serves on the Advisory Board for Jesuit Connections and has relished opportunities to collaborate with the 8th Day Center for Justice, Charis Ministries, Ignatian Solidarity Network, and her parish, Old St. Patrick’s Church. Music and theatre continue to be central to Katie’s life and ministry.
In addition to the communities listed above, Katie is deeply grateful to her family, her partner Kevin, and her mentors and friends from Merion Mercy Academy, BVM School, and Young People’s Theatre Workshop in PA, all of whom have encouraged her to cultivate and share her authentic voice.
