Reverend Jacob DuMont, L.C.
I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I joined the major seminary for the Legionaries of Christ in 1994 and was ordained a priest on December 20, 2008. During my formation in the seminary I obtained a master’s degree in philosophy and a bachelor’s degree in theology from Regina Apostolorum in Rome, Italy. Currently I am finishing an online master’s in theology through Holy Apostles College located in Cromwell, Ct.
In my priesthood, I have served as a regional vocation director in the North Midwest region for the Legionaries of Christ as well as a director of youth and young adult ministry in the Chicago area. A little over 4 years ago I was appointed as the local superior for the Legionaries of Christ’s community in Mandeville, Louisiana. Over the past few years I have served and continue to serve as the chaplain for the Young Catholic Professional chapter of New Orleans and as a spiritual director for a number of our Regnum Christi members in New Orleans. This year I will also be on staff at Notre Dame seminary as a part-time spiritual director for the seminarians.
