Chaplain Services


Wherever you are on your faith journey with or toward God, I am happy to accompany you during your time at Mount Ida College.  I don’t see my role as bringing God to campus, but see my role as helping you connect to God who is already present on campus.

My faith tradition is within the Roman Catholic Christian faith and I am a Capuchin Franciscan Brother.  As an alumus of Mount Ida, I’m aware of the many different faiths on campus, and it is a time when many students are exploring where they fit in their faith.  It’s exciting and a pleasure for me to be a part of your exploration of faith.  Whatever faith you identify with or if you are still figuring that part, I’m happy to assist in any way that I am able.  Never hesitate to stop me when you see me around campus (I’m not hard to notice!) or to email or call me.

I am happy to help you arrange prayer services on campus on a regular basis, or for high holy days of all faiths.  Please let me know in advance of these days and I will help you arrange a space and time.

I look forward to our time together!
