Jesuit Connections began this year’s series of “Pizza & a Pint Conversations” with a panel of four alumni from Jesuit schools who have been called to serve the Church as ordained clergy or lay ministers in a variety of Christian traditions.
Lyn Campbell, a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross, shared her experience of being raised in the Roman Catholic tradition and the path that led her to becoming an ordained Episcopal priest. Joceyln Collen, a Fairfield University graduate with a Master of Divinity from Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, discussed her work with “Catholic Women Preach" as chaplain and religion teacher at a school for special needs children, and her prison ministry work in Boston. Jason Downer, SJ, a graduate of Canisius College and a current student at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, shared his journey to becoming a Jesuit. Mina Kaddis, a graduate of Boston College, talked about his multi-dimensional vocation as a practicing dentist, husband, father, and an ordained priest in the Coptic Orthodox Church.
