Personal Introduction

Welcome! My name is John Roselle, SJ, and I took lifelong ("perpetual") vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience as a Jesuit on August 13th, 2011 after a two-year novitiate. I am now a Jesuit Scholastic for the Wisconsin Province of the Society of Jesus. I will study philosophy and theology for the next three years at Loyola University in Chicago. At the same time, I will do part-time ministry in some capacity with the poor. After that, I will likely teach for three years before finishing three more years of theology. Then, God willing, I will be ordained a Roman Catholic Jesuit priest! It's a long road, but a blessed, fun, and enriching one. This blog exists as a resource for friends, family, and others who are interested in my progress through the Jesuit process of formation. Every day is its own adventure, and I am happy to have you along with me to share in this. This blog contains my own personal thoughts and should not be taken to speak for the entire Society of Jesus. Feel free to contact me. God bless you!

Young Nuns Coming to John Carroll!!!

At John Carroll University, I am blessed to help support a Catholic devotional group called Alpha Omega.  We are bringing in a phenomenal group of 4 nuns (from a teaching order that is bursting at the seams with vocations!).  There is quite a bit of excitement surrounding their visit.  Too often religious sisters and nuns are pigeon-holed as a relic of the past, when in fact it is a vocation that is perhaps more relevant, needed, and  inspiring than ever before!

See the promotional material posted below and please pray for the success of this event!

ALPHA OMEGA (The JCU Catholic Devotional Group)

The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist from Ann Arbor, MI

Twice featured on Oprah, these nuns are young, joyful, smart, inspiring, empowered, and strong in numbers (they have grown to over 100 nuns in 13 years, average age 28!). They are coming here to teach us more about finding God's path for our lives.  Don't miss this special event!
