      Patty Feder

Eager to make a return for all Christ has done for me, I gratefully assist the UCS Office of Ignatian Spirituality with its administrative functions so gifted ministers of Ignatian Spirituality can more freely companion those seeking to deepen their encounter with the Lord. I do so from the context of a married and parenting vocation shared with my generously supportive husband Dan. Juggling full-time family life and part-time administration, I remain a happy and perpetual “student” of the Spiritual Exercises and Ignatian Discernment.

I have worked for many years in Jesuit higher education, as an administrator in Student Affairs, as a Chief Mission Officer, and as a faculty member. I have seen first-hand how personal experiences of the Spiritual Exercises in their many forms have deepened the understanding of our colleagues about this unique and life-giving tradition in our schools. It’s a gift that we hope to share in many forms going forward.

I have had the privilege of working in the ministry of Jesuit secondary education as a faculty member and administrator for most of my adult life. Through school community relationships blessed with sincere pastoral care, I have experienced and witnessed students and faculty alike, respond to the invitation to deepen their relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ. As partners in the ministry of service, we are here to assist as each of us responds to their personal call from God.

Pilgrimage Coordinator:
   Lan Chieu Nguyen

It is a delight to combine my passions for Ignatian Spirituality and traveling into organizing pilgrimages for the OIS. I believe being at holy sites and on the road creates a unique space for one to encounter the Lord and others. I am a software manager at a defense company in Southern California and member of the Dong-Hanh Christian Life Community (CLC). I enjoy accompanying others on the Spiritual Exercises and Ignatian retreats.

Tech and Other Support:
   Conganh Pham
      web developer

I worked as an electronic engineer for 34 years and retired in 2019. During a Collaborating and Networking trip to Belize, Fr. Hung and Fr. Pepe recruited me to work on the website that would be tailored to the need of the OIS mission. I have learned much through the work; but best of all is the experience of meeting new people and see God's transformative power.

Facility Manager:
   Lauretta Proulx

I have had the blessing of being called and able to work in ministry for over 42 years. I began leading music for Mass before I got my driver’s license.  From there God led me to serve youth as a Youth Minister, followed by working at the Archdiocese of Denver, to serving as a Pastoral Associate locally.  Each community I have been honored to serve has led me to my new position as the Building and Hospitality Manager of the Xavier Jesuit Center on behalf of the UCS Office of Ignatian Spirituality. The mission of the OIS brings my faith and professional journey full circle.
