Jack Treacy, S.J. '77 writes: "I'm in my seventh year serving as director of campus ministry at SCU. I love being back here, contributing to a university community that was so important in my own growth. I can't imagine living a more rewarding life, as I'm inviting into the lives of our students as they develop their minds, open their hearts and form themselves for the rest of their lives. It's a privilege to lead them in prayer, to speak with them about life questions and faith issues, to enjoy happy times and share challenging moments with them. I often think back to our time at SCU as I make my way across campus!"
