Fr. Daniel McShane

Chaplain & Campus Ministry
Favorite Quote: “[Jesus] said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9)


Fr. McShane grew up in South Bend, Indiana and is excited to join the Peoria Notre Dame family as chaplain! He also serves at St. Jude Catholic Church in Peoria. One of his favorite parts about PND is the faith of the faculty and students, which inspires him to pursue a deeper love for Christ.  In his free time, Fr. McShane enjoys reading, playing music, exercising, playing sports, and catching up with friends. A fun fact about Fr. McShane – flying is one of his biggest fears, so you will not see him skydiving any time soon!
