Campus Ministry is excited to announce the hiring of two new assistant directors: Rev. Nathaniel Romano, S.J., and Andrew Mountin — both are Marquette University alumni.
Father Romano has been named the new assistant director of Campus Ministry for liturgical programs; Mountin has been named the assistant director of Campus Ministry for liturgical music, replacing Tom Koester, who retired this summer.
Most recently at Boston College, Father Romano lectured in the college’s law school and provided pastoral outreach to students and faculty. Mountin joins the Campus Ministry team after working at Fairfield University in Connecticut, where he was the director music and liturgy.
“Mission and Ministry is delighted to welcome Father Romano and Andrew to our team to assist us in continuing to provide students with enlightening and meaningful experiences with God,” says Rev. Jim Voiss, S.J., vice president for mission and ministry. “With their help and guidance, our faith-based student groups and programs will be as strong as ever.”
“Father Romano and Andrew are fantastic additions to our team,” adds Mary Sue Callan-Farley, director of Campus Ministry. “As alumni, Father Nathaniel and Andrew intimately understand the values and mission we strive toward every day as we accompany students on campus. Nate and Andrew’s attention to cura personalis as they work to form students to be leaders in the church is impressive. I am excited to see ministry and liturgy flourish with their respective expertise and commitment to full and active participation of the worship community.”
“As a proud alumnus of Marquette, I was ecstatic to be assigned to a ministry here at this fine university,” Father Romano says. “I am looking forward to acquainting myself with our students and learning what resources they need on campus to have an enriched moments with their God.”
Mountin says, “as an alumnus of Marquette and having worked in multiple universities across the country, coming back to work at my alma mater feels like coming home. With the semester underway, I am eager to work with new and returning students to continue the lasting legacy of the Marquette Liturgical Choir.”
