“As a MTS student in 2010 my heartfelt desire was to receive a theological education that not only deepened my faith but enabled me to find a workplace where I could practice and grow my faith while also using my years of human resources experience in meaningful ways.  Well I found that workplace here at Regis College and so much more than I could have imagined! Our College mission is grounded in Ignatian spirituality inviting us to serve the Church, the world and each other through our Gospel values. Our faith-filled community provides opportunities for rich academic learning and discourse, friendships, liturgies and social events that re-affirm our mission and nourish us. It is a privilege to work in such a unique environment with the Jesuits and laity serving and being challenged in new ways knowing that we are people of God wanting to find God in all things”.
