Joe Seiter Makes First Vows to the Jesuits
Joe Seiter, S.J. recently made perpetual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, to the Jesuit Order. He made his vows at the 2021 Vow Mass of the USA Central and Southern (UCS) Province of the Society of Jesus. The Mass was held August 14, at St. Charles Borromeo Church in Grand Coteau, La.
Pictured is Very Rev. Thomas P. Green, S.J., Provincial, receiving Joe's vows. In Jesuit nomenclature, Joe is now a Scholastic, meaning that he will be proceeding with studies toward his eventual ordination. In the Fall, Joe will be attending Fordham University where he will study philosophy.

A New Face in the Frassati Center!
We are excited to announce our new Director of Youth Ministry:
Philip is a native of Mobile and grew up right here at St. Ignatius. He spent his grade school years as an Impala and his high school years as a Yellow Jacket. Philp participated in many activities along the way but excelled in Track and Cross Country at McGill-Toolen. He was also a Chamber singer, a student ambassador, a campus ministry leader and a "regular" at Lifeteen in the Frassati Center. Philip went on to LSU as a member of the Men's Track and Field team where he received 5 varsity letters and was honored with many athletic and academic awards. While at LSU, he was active at Christ the King Catholic Student Center as an RCIA team member, a retreat coordinator and Bible study leader. He graduated from LSU in 2015 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Philip and his new wife, Aimee (who is from Louisiana), have been living in Charlotte, NC and are looking forward to moving back to Mobile and to St. Ignatius.
Welcome "home" Philip and Aimee!
