Father McGuire became the Director of NYU’s campus ministry in 1995, where he engaged in direct ministry with the Catholic students of NYU, the largest population of Catholic students in the United States. Father McGuire was also a much sought after retreat leader. In 2015, the Dominican Friars Foundation was honored to present him with the Veritas Award for Excellence in recognition of his work.
On Christmas Day of 2016, Father John McGuire died peacefully in his sleep after the Christmas celebrations. If you are so inclined, a donation by way of the secure form below will go toward the establishment of a Scholarship Fund in Father McGuire’s memory. Thank you for your support and prayers.
