Fr. Penn Dawson, S.J.
A native of Tampa, Florida, Penn earned his Juris Doctor with honors from the University of Florida in 1987. For many years thereafter he practiced as a partner in the trial department of the firm of Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen. As an attorney, his practice led to frequent invitations to speak on the subjects of legal ethics and attorney liability issues. In 2009, he entered the Jesuit Novitiate in Grand Coteau, Louisiana. After professing his first vows as a Jesuit in 2011, Penn earned a Master of Arts in philosophy from Loyola University Chicago. Upon completing his philosophy degree in Chicago, he was missioned as a visiting professor of law at Loyola University in New Orleans where he taught Torts, Legal Philosophy, and Professional Ethics. While at Loyola New Orleans he assisted in campus ministry and during the summer of 2017, taught a course on Saint Ignatius and Ignatian spirituality for a group of Loyola New Orleans students in Rome. Penn then completed with highest honors his Master of Divinity degree at Regis College with the University of Toronto in Canada and served as a deacon at Saint Peter’s parish in Toronto. His first assignment as a priest after ordination was as Parochial Vicar at St Peter Claver Parish in Punta Gorda, Belize. Fr. Dawson now teaches at Loyola University Law School in New Orleans and assists at Holy Name of Jesus Parish.Date: 02/27/2021 (Sat.) Time: 9:00am - 12:30pm CST Location: OLPS Shrine
