Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.

Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J. is best known for his appearances on EWTN, where he currently hosts two television programs– "Threshold of Hope" and "EWTN Live." He is a weekly host of EWTN Radio's "Open Line" program. Father Pacwa is a best-selling Catholic author and has written numerous books on a variety of topics about the Scripture and our Catholic Faith to continue to teach us and generations to come. 

In 2000, Father Pacwa established Ignatius Productions, a Catholic media production apostolate, under the Society of Jesus, whose mission is to teach people the scriptures, educate Catholics about their Faith, and promote unity and understanding within the Mystical Body of Christ. 

For over forty years, Father Pacwa has taught conferences and retreats throughout the country. His mission is to offer younger adults the opportunity to talk with him in informal, smaller venues. He wants to listen to, support, and strengthen the next generation of Catholics as they strive to live their faith in today's culture. In 2017, Father Pacwa extended his teaching mission by embarking on a new "Legacy of Faith Project." This is a specific effort to reach younger Catholics in answering their questions and concerns as living as Catholics in the 21st century. 

Father Pacwa received his B.A. in Philosophy and Theology from the University of Detroit, summa cum laude. He was ordained a Catholic priest in 1976 with the Society of Jesus, as a Master of Divinity and S.T.B. from the Jesuit School of Theology of Loyola University, magna cum laude. At Vanderbilt University, he received his Master of Arts as well as his Ph.D. in Old Testament.
