Reverend Jeffrey Montz
Reverend Jeffrey A. Montz, S.T.L. is a native of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He grew up in Chalmette where he was involved from a young age in his home parish, Our Lady of Prompt Succor. The faithful witness of his parents helped to lead him to develop a personal relationship with God and to foster within him a sense of vocation to the priesthood from a young age. He attended Archbishop Hannan High School, and upon graduation entered into seminary formation at St. Joseph Seminary College.
After graduating from St. Joseph Seminary College in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts, Fr. Montz continued his seminary formation at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans where he received a Masters of Divinity in 2008. That same year Fr. Montz was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
Following ordination Fr. Montz served the Archdiocese as parochial vicar of three different parishes over the span of five years with one year being spent part-time in the diocesan office of worship. In 2013 he was sent to Rome to pursue a licentiate in spiritual theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum).
Having completed his licentiate in the summer of 2015, Fr. Montz joined the full-time faculty of Notre Dame Seminary where he currently serves as spiritual director, assistant director of spiritual formation, and professor of theology.
