Mercy College of Health Sciences will benefit from the breadth of professional and spiritual experience that Fr. Dan Nolan, CSV brings to the role of Director of Campus Ministry as he assumes his duties with the start of the spring 2013 academic semester.
Fr. Nolan is a member of the Clerics of Viator, a Roman Catholic religious community of men with their provincial offices located in Chicago. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1983.
Fr. Nolan holds a Master of Divinity degree from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, and a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He also has completed coursework in Studies in Theology and Philosophy from Loyola University in Chicago and he holds a Certificate in Clinical Pastoral Experience from Mercy Hospital in Chicago.
Assignments throughout his priesthood have included service as a residence hall rector at the University of Notre Dame; pastor of parishes in Illinois and Nevada; leadership positions within the Clerics of St. Viator; teaching high school English and theology in both Illinois and Nevada; and most recently chaplain for St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach, California.
"We are excited to welcome Fr. Nolan, and with his leadership we will expand our campus ministry initiatives that are extended to all students, staff, alumni and friends. The Sisters of Mercy provided a strong mission identity and legacy of reaching out to all faith traditions in serving the whole person -- body, mind and spirit. With Fr. Dan's assistance, we will continue to nurture our healing ministry at Mercy College," said President Barbara Q. Decker.
The College will be hosting three “open house” events offering beverages and snacks plus the opportunity to meet Fr. Dan in the lobby of Brennan Hall, outside the campus ministry office (BH124) next week at the following times:
Tuesday, January 29 from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m.,
