Fr. Boom Martinez, SJ To Replace Fr. Hightower, SJ As Director

As I announced at the Masses, Fr. Hightower has been asked to take the place of a sick Jesuit priest in Montana, so Fr. Joaquin “Boom” Martinez will instead be our new director after I leave at the end of this month. He is eager to serve this community (he was one of the Jesuits who proposed that they begin to serve Newman Centers), and I’m working with him via phone and email to orient him. Fr. Manh, David Vacchi, the pastoral council, and the student ministers will also make sure he has the orientation he needs.

Frs. Martinez and Manh won’t be able to come until mid-August, but I’m helping them find priests to do the Sunday Masses and confessions in July and the beginning of August. Community favorite Fr. Jose will be doing lots of those Masses.

God continues to provide for us!

Greetings From Our Incoming Director

Fr. C. Hightower, SJ will be our new director beginning July 1. I’ll announce our new associate director at the beginning of April, after he’s had a chance to announce his departure from his current ministry.

They’ll both visit our community in April and May, and Fr. Hightower will get to spend the last couple weeks of June here finishing his orientation.

Meanwhile, enjoy Fr. Hightower's bio and pray for our new Jesuit priests.

Letter to the Community

Dear Community, I have some sad and difficult news to share with you. For the last several years, the Western Dominican Province has been doing some long term planning. One of the main challenges we face is the gradually dwindling number of friars, making it hard for us to carry on our communal life of prayer and ministry. Last weekend, our provincial council decided that we will leave San Diego, including the ministry here at UCSD, at the end of June.
