Dear Members of the Echo Community,
I am very happy to announce that Tim Pisacich is joining the Echo staff as Assistant Director of Human, Communal, and Spiritual Formation. Tim received his undergraduate degree from Providence College in Rhode Island, where he was involved in Campus Ministry retreats and RCIA. In the years following his graduation, Tim joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corp as a policy advocate in the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance, served as a high school religion teacher and media specialist, and was an intern for America magazine.
Tim graduated in May of this year from the Master of Divinity program here at Notre Dame where he served in a variety of ministry settings, including Bethlehem Farm in West Virginia, Christ the King Parish and the Stone Soup Community in South Bend, the Center for Social Concerns as a facilitator in the Summer Service Learning Program, the Office of Campus Ministry as a live-in mentor for the Campus Ministry Internship Program, and most recently as Campus Ministry’s first graduate chaplain intern offering spiritual formation to graduate students throughout the Department of Theology. Even more compelling than his broad ministry experience is Tim’s reputation as a generous colleague, a faithful servant leader, and a natural formator.
Tim would like to share the following words with all of you:
Dear Echo Community:
I am grateful and honored to serve as a human, communal, and spiritual formator for Echo. Over the last few days, I have enjoyed meeting Echo apprentices from classes nine and ten. What struck me about these young adults is the warm welcome they offered me from our initial meeting. Serving as a formator for Echo apprentices is a great privilege and responsibility and I could not hope for a more wise and dedicated team to do this valuable work with. I am most excited to support and encourage the ecclesial leadership that Echo apprentices and alumni offer the Church.
Thank you to the Echo and Institute for Church Life communities for your warm welcome, and feel free to stop by Geddes 321 to say hello!
The Echo staff and I look forward to working with Tim and hope that you will join us in welcoming him to the Echo community as he assumes his new position.
