Supervised by Dr. Chris Stravitsch, DMin, LPC-S, LMFT-S

Fr. Kingsley Ogbuji, SSJ, is a priest of the St. Joseph Society of the Sacred Heart, also known as the Josephites. A native of Nigeria, he is currently the pastor of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church in Houston, where he ministers to the spiritual and pastoral needs of the people. He holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the Pontifical Urban University, Rome. In 2018, Fr. Kingsley received his MA and MDiv degrees in theology from the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC. He is currently pursuing a certification program in the ministry of healing and deliverance from Pope Leo XIII Institute in Chicago.

Fr. Kingsley is a graduate practicum student working towards a master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from George Washington University. He volunteered at the Howard County Department of Corrections in Baltimore, Maryland, where he provided counseling to the inmates. This experience helped him understand the helplessness and hopelessness people feel when they are in difficult situations.

Fr. Kingsley enjoys writing books on faith and prayer, and he also has a music album called “Meditative Songs of Healing.” He enjoys playing soccer, table tennis, and listening to Christian music, but his greatest love is in the Eucharist.
