Reverend Terrence W. Curry was born in Houlton, Maine, a small town bordering New Brunswick, Canada, the oldest of five children. His parents unknowingly helped pave his way to the Society of Jesus when they decided to send him to Cheverus, the Jesuit preparatory school in Portland, Maine. He was one of only a handful of students who boarded privately with a family.
Fr. Curry entered the Jesuits upon graduation from high school. After the usual course of studies at Shadowbrook in Lenox, philosophy at Boston College and theology at Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, he felt blessed to be able to minister for nearly forty years as a hospital chaplain – at Mercy Hospital in Portland, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Georgetown University Hospital in Washington and Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester. Since August 2017, Fr. Curry has served as chaplain to the Jesuit priests and brothers residing at Campion Health Center.
Fr. Curry’s ministry continues to the aging and sick – but now to brothers – many he has known for decades.
