Chaplaincy to the National Alumni Association
Members of the Office of Mission and Ministry, the two Dominican Associate Chaplains to the National Alumni Association, Fr. J. Stuart McPhail, O.P. ’61 and Fr. James Quigley, O.P. ’60, have each spent the greater portion of their priestly lives and ministries at Providence College, Fr. McPhail, in Student Services (for eighteen years as Vice President), and now Alumni Relations, and Fr. Quigley, in the Chaplain’s Office, Department of Theology, and Executive Office (as Executive Vice President under Fr. Cunningham).
During their student years, thousands and thousands of current PC alumni and alumnae crossed paths with Fr. McPhail and Fr. Quigley and continue to do so. The Alumni Chaplains reach out to the College’s alums, particularly in times of sickness and bereavement, and establish programs of faith formation and spiritual development for alums through area alumni clubs and online.
