Born in Buffalo, New York, USA in 1952, Louis Lougen met the Oblates as a student at Bishop Neumann High School in Buffalo, and entered the juniorate in Newburgh, New York, in 1970. He made his first profession at the novitiate in Godfrey, Illinois, in 1973 and continued his first formation at Oblate College in Washington, D.C., obtaining a Baccalaureate in Philosophy and a Master’s in Theology. He made perpetual vows in Newburgh in 1976.

On September, 28, 2010, the 35th General Chapter in Rome elected Fr. Louis as the 13th Superior General of the Congregation.
