Colleen Mulligan named as interim Pastoral Associate
After a nationwide search and multiple interviews, Fr. Matthew Holland has chosen Colleen Mulligan as interim Pastoral Associate. Colleen previously served in this role from 1997 to 2007 with Fr. John Fuchs, SJ and Fr. Steve Lantry, SJ. Her presence on staff will provide vital stability in a year of change—with Fr. Matt moving into the responsibilities of pastor; with Fr. Alan leaving for Dublin and Fr. Elias Puentes arriving in January; and with Theresa McDermott-Erskine retiring in January after 18 years as the Office Coordinator. Colleen brings a wealth of knowledge of the collective memory of the community, a high level of skill as a supervisor and administrator, and a deep commitment to the values of discernment and Ignatian spirituality. She will begin in late August and will serve in this role for up to one year. Please share your appreciation and gratitude for Colleen, and for her availability in accepting this position.
