Class of 2011-2012, Naughton Fellowship recipient
University College Dublin, 2011
Following ESTEEM I entered into Moreau Seminary at Notre Dame in answer to God's calling to life as a religious priest. My life since has consisted mainly of graduate studies in theology and formation in the life of a vowed religious. However, I maintain a strong interest in the work and mission of ESTEEM because of Holy Cross' integral role and deep investment in the mission of the University of Notre Dame. ESTEEM holds out the possibility of bridging divides and fostering relationship that could be a spark for economic stimulus. It is my hope that it can especially be so for the most disadvantaged in our current society while also seeking solutions to major problems facing our world, environmentally, economically and socially.
