I am excited to be involved with T.H.E.A. because of the opportunity to combine my interest and passion for spirituality, environmental sustainability, and Loyola University Chicago.  Pope Francis has been very clear about our responsibility for God's creation and this program will help young people come to understand that call more deeply and more practically.  As the director of the retreat program, I have seen the great potential for spirituality and ecology working together and look forward to seeing the program developed on our beautiful Lakeshore campus.
