Oliva, Max

Max Oliva, S.J. ’61 was recently featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal for the success of his "attention-getting" ministry, Ethics in the Marketplace. Through short talks to business groups, full-length seminars, or individual sessions, Fr. Oliva works with businesspeople—Catholics or non-Catholics—to try to sort through quandaries they encounter in the office: How should a businessperson deal with a larcenous partner, lay off people to satisfy cash flow necessities yet not crush the spirit of the former employees, or handle a contract dispute with a client?

"My experience is there's not a lot of people you can talk to about this stuff," Oliva said. "You don't want to talk to your boss. You can't talk to a pastor because he is overwhelmed with other things. You don't want to take it home and make it a big problem." That's when Oliva comes in.

HALL, John

John Hall ’61 writes: “I recovered from malignant melanoma during the past three years, am now healthy again with good blood results. Wrote a just-published book, Beating Cancer Can Be Fun, [filled with] cancer surviving strategies for first-time diagnosed cancer patients, available as an e-book on Amazon or Nook at Barnes and Noble or as a hardback or soft. If you know anyone with cancer, have them call me regarding the nutrients and supplements I take to stay healed. I still am an active therapist for kids and adults, just contracted with TriCareWest to counsel traumatized veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan."
