    Ms. Rachel Doll O'Mahoney

    Campus Minister for Faith Formation
    Phone: 206.296.5585

    Rachel has been doing ministry of one kind or another since She was a young adult.  She joined Seattle University Campus Ministry in the fall of 2010 Rachel received a graduate degree at Weston Jesuit School of Theology (currently Boston College School of Theology and Ministry) and did her undergraduate work at Quincy University where she studied theology and Franciscan studies.  

    Her clearest vocational call is the voice of women she ministered for (or did they do the ministry?) at a prison ministry in Northern Missouri. These experiences shaped her perspectives on justice, race, and poverty issues in American culture, and continue to inspire her to work with others who will bring about change in our world!  From these foundational experiences she is inspired to live a life devoted to curiosity, simple living, a deep trust in the work of the Holy Spirit and creating change in small, but inspired ways. 

    Rachel and her partner delight in married life and have 2 awesome daughters who ensure that they live in the present moment and find God in the chaos of life.  She has a pair of very dirty gardening shoes, a full spice rack, a pile of crafty projects and more books checked out from the library than should be allowed.

    Ms. Marilyn Nash

    Campus Minister for Ignatian Spirituality & Resident Minister for Bellarmine Hall
    Phone: 206.296.2267

    Marilyn Nash was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Seattle as a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and fell in love with the northwest. After JVC she worked in social services attending to communities who were homeless or on the margins and was very impacted by the experience. She has a special interest in the body’s relationship to spirituality and worked as a massage therapist for over 10 years. She is an alumna of SU’s School of Theology and Ministry. Marilyn’s passions blur between the personal and professional. She enjoys conversations and spaces that explore spirituality, contemplation, discernment, mindfulness and meaning making; and finds joy in good meals, bad puns, expressive words, gathering communities and being with students.  

    She hopes her presence at Seattle U helps to both honor and adapt the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius; and that students feel more receptive to loving and being loved through their encounters with her and with campus ministry. Marilyn also currently lives in Bellarmine Hall as a Resident Minister!
