CJ Philosophy: Chaminade Julienne is a unique and special place. I felt at home the first time I walked through the doors. CJ provides students ample opportunities to not only grow in their academic lives but in their personal and spiritual lives as well. CJ intentionally weaves together education, faith formation, social justice and community into one so as to form the whole student. The Marianist and Notre Dame de Namur charisms are truly alive in our students, faculty, and staff. I feel truly blessed to be a part of this welcoming, loving, supportive community.
As a first generation Catholic Syrian American I bring my love for theology and ministry to my students. Although short, my experience working in campus ministry has proved to me that this path is my vocation and my calling. As a campus minister, my hope is that once our students graduate from CJ, they continue to live out their faith lives in college and beyond, continue to serve the poor and the vulnerable, and to recognize Jesus in all people that they encounter.
