β€œIt is a privilege to serve as a Campus Minister at Jesuit High School. Whether forming my student retreat leaders, planning and leading off-campus retreat experiences, guiding prayer and Reconciliation Services or providing spiritual direction, my ministry is one of invitation . . . inviting students into awareness of their true selves, their individual gifts, and deeper, more intentional relationships with each other and with God.  AMDG.”
