By the Very Rev. Patrick J. Lee, S.J.
To all gathered here today and to Fr. Philip Boroughs, S.J., I bring you greetings from the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus. I am thankful for this opportunity to gather here with you as Phil continues the journey of service the Lord called him to 45 years ago. The mission of the Society of Jesus, and Phil’s special dedication, is to a faith that promotes justice. In his life as a Jesuit, Phil has fearlessly spoken out and worked for the poor and the marginalized. As a friend in the Lord, I have watched him grow in his ability to reach out to those in need, bring them the Good News of Jesus, as well as meet their more human and practical needs. In his role as a teacher and administrator, he has demonstrated great skill in collaborating with others and in calling them to this same mission. Phil, I am confident that you will be a grace and blessing to the Board of Trustees, the faculty, administration, staff, students, parents and alumni of the College of the Holy Cross. Know that each day you and this entire community will be in my prayers.
The Very Rev. Patrick J. Lee, S.J., is the provincial of Oregon.
