Ordained an Archdiocesan priest in Chicago in 1986, he also has published numerous books, essays, and DVDs. He received a Master's Degree in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America in 1982 and earned his doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Institut Catholique de Paris in 1992.

Fr. Barron lectures extensively in the United States and abroad, including the Pontifical North American College at the Vatican and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome and he is an award-winning author. His numerous books and essays serve as critical educational and inspirational tools for seminarians, priests, parishioners and young people worldwide. His published works are also central to the numerous retreats, workshop and talks that he leads around the country.
