Are you at a moment of decision in your life or career? Do you need some help figuring out what to do with your life? The Jesuits have a nearly 500-year-old tradition that you can rely on for help. Join Fr. Kevin O'Brien (C’88), SJ, Vice President of Mission and Ministry and author of The Ignatian Adventure: Experiencing the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius in Daily Life, as he shares what this tradition has to offer us 21st century "discerners."

Rev. Kevin O’Brien has been serving as Vice President for Mission and Ministry since August, 2011. For three years prior to his appointment as VP, he served Georgetown as Executive Director of Campus Ministry. Before returning to Georgetown in 2008, O’Brien served as Associate Pastor at Holy Trinity Church in Washington, DC. He has taught philosophy and ethics at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, and assisted in the Office of University Mission and Ministry at Fordham University. He has had extensive experience in both University and community ministry and is a published scholar and lecturer in Georgetown’s Department of Theology. O’Brien holds a J.D. from the University of Florida, an M.A. in Philosophy from Fordham University, and a Masters of Divinity and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology (now part of Boston College).

In addition to his role as VP for Mission and Ministry, O’Brien lives as a Jesuit in residence in Copley Hall and teaches a popular, second-level theology course, “The Church in the 21st Century.” Locally, he serves on the board of the Washington Jesuit Academy, a middle-school for boys from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
