William Woody, S.J. is a Jesuit scholastic of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus. Originally from Bryn Mawr, PA, he studied philosophy and theology at the University of Scranton and Fordham University in New York.
Bill taught philosophy at St. Peter’s University in Jersey City, NJ and most recently at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. His philosophical interests focus largely on contemporary philosophy of religion, specifically phenomenologies of religious experience, liturgy, and prayer, as well as the intersection of faith with postmodern culture.
As part of Jesuit formation en route to priestly ordination in the Roman Catholic Church, Bill recently moved to Boston College to continue graduate theological studies.
