Inauguration: Greetings From the Society of Jesus (Fr. Sheehan)

September 14th, 2012 by 


By the Very Rev. Myles N. Sheehan, S.J.

As Provincial of the Society of Jesus of New England, I welcome Fr. Boroughs to his ministry as the 32nd President of the College of the Holy Cross. The Society of Jesus takes seriously the sponsorship of Holy Cross and the College’s Jesuit and Catholic identity.  While fully recognizing the authority of the Board of Trustees to appoint you president, as Provincial I am delighted to have the responsibility and honor of recognizing you as director of this work of the Society of Jesus and I look forward to working with and learning from you as you lead this distinguished institution.

I know you as a compassionate, thoughtful, and capable man, who will work in a collaborative and respectful manner with the faculty and staff of Holy Cross, serve as a leader and advocate for students, be an effective representative to alumni, and, in sum, be a wonderful example of a Jesuit and a priest committed to the ministry of higher education. I know that you bring the skills and insights to affirm the Catholic and Jesuit mission of this school in the ways that are open to knowledge, dedicated to the pursuit of faith and the struggle for justice, and conscious of the importance of liberal arts education as part of the development of young men and women capable of responding to the needs of our world. I also know that you will encourage the faculty, students, and staff to grow not only in knowledge, and dedicated service, but also in the love of God.

To be President of this college, bearing its distinctive name, means to form, lead, and model a community of love, integrity, faith, and knowledge, dedicated to service, the love of learning, and the desire for God. It also requires the example of Jesus in welcoming and making part of the community individuals who come from outside the College’s historic tradition seeking knowledge and growth, making this Jesuit and Catholic College a place where individuals from many faith traditions, and those who do not believe, are fully welcome and respected, even while our own Catholic tradition is visibly loved and respected.

To be President of Holy Cross requires the great personal skills, talents, and gifts you have, Phil. It also requires the grace of God and familiarity with God’s ways. I thank God for all you bring to us in New England and at this College. And I will pray, and ask all of us to pray, for your ongoing deepening in the knowledge and love of God, who has loved you so much.
