Luke Lavin (He/Him)

Doctor of Philosophy
Master of Divinity
Bachelor of Arts and Science

Director of Campus Ministry

Luke was raised on the Olympic Peninsula and took the ferry across the Puget Sound daily to attend O'Dea High School on First Hill. After finishing his Undergraduate degree at Gonzaga in Spokane, he spent two years immersed in the rich culture of the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia as a Jesuit Volunteer. The gift, love and grace he experienced there were transformational and inspirational in his vocation to ministry and Jesuit education. Luke is a two-time alum of Gonzaga University and earned his MDiv from the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara at Berkeley. Perhaps the greatest gift of his Jesuit education was meeting his wife and best friend Amy as an Undergrad and the three daughters they are graced to explore each day with. Luke is passionate about his catholic faith and its intersection with Justice, building more inclusive communities, and multiple ways the sacred breaks through in plural identities, beliefs, expressions and viewpoints. Luke has a deep love of the mountains, trail-running, collecting 90s backpacker hip-hop vinyl, novels, poetry, and spaces of genuine connection that allow us to ask our most profound and authentic questions.

Megan Kush was born and raised in Southern California. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Spanish at the University of San Diego and a Master of Divinity degree at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. As an undergraduate, Megan was immersed in settings that engaged the intersections of faith and justice, ultimately leading her to the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and onto a path of accompanying others on their own faith journey. Her passion for ministry grew through her work with youth and young adults in diverse parish settings, as well as in her role as a hospital chaplain. Megan finds renewal and rest through a variety of activities, including walks by the waterside, hiking, attempting new recipes, eating good food, journaling, and salsa dancing. Megan is thrilled to work with young adults once again, seeking to listen and accompany students during the significant, as well as daily moments, of their lives.

Master of Theology in Ignatian Spirituality
Master of Divinity

Campus Minister

Vincent was born and raised in Vietnam. He and his family migrated to the United States on September 29, 1992. Before becoming a Jesuit of the US West province in 2003, he lived in San Diego, California. He was very active in his home parish as a leader of the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement. During his Jesuits formation, especially his theological studies at Regis College in Toronto-Canada, he got an excellent opportunity to journey with young adults in parish and university settings by listening deeply to their sharing and hanging out with them. After his ordination in 2014, Vincent was assigned to the Most Holy Trinity parish, a very diverse and multicultural parish, in San Jose, California as a parochial vicar. During his five years as a parish priest, he enjoyed the church sacramental life, including organizing many liturgical inculturation celebrations. Vincent is very excited to work in a diverse campus ministry team and especially to continue walking with students during the unusual time, the pandemic.
