Alumni Living the Mission
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Monday, February 6, 2012 at 11:14 AM PST
This month, Magis will begin to feature alumni who are living the mission of Jesuit education in their everyday lives.
Mother and son, Nancy and Clay Walton-House are both alumni of Seattle University (1964 and 2007, respectively), and through their participation in Magis programs such as the Justice Education Forum, Alumni Day of Prayer, and Contemplative Leaders in ActionLeadership Program, have developed their understanding of how they want to live the Jesuit values of faith, justice, and leadership in their lives. As Nancy puts it, "Magis inspires and challenges me to live the values and practice the behaviors called for by my faith tradition … [and] calls me to choose justice and the common good whenever possible." To read their full interview, visit Living the Mission online.
Also, did you and your spouse get married in the Chapel of St. Ignatius on the Seattle University campus? If so, then be sure to "Save the Date" for the Renewal of Wedding of Vows in
honor of the 15th Anniversary of the Chapel of St. Ignatius on Sunday, April 15, 2012. A vow renewal ceremony will be concelebrated with Fr. Steve Sundborg, S.J. and Fr. Dave Anderson, S.J. followed by a reception with wine and appetizers. Magis and Alumni Relations invite you and your spouse to participate in this unique opportunity!
