Local Focus, Global Impact

Dayne Malcolm, SJ, is from Jamaica

He did his regency at Cristo Rey Jesuit Baltimore and he is part of the Jesuit Antiracism Sodality East leadership group. He is also a board member of the Ignatian Solidarity Network. He is ordained as a deacon and will be ordained to the priesthood next year.

Dayne spent two weeks volunteering with us, while he lived in the Jesuit Community at Gonzaga. He is completing his studies in Theology at Berkeley. When he came to The Center, he was looking for a respite from the “heady work”of studies. “I wanted to do grunt work; it gets me out of my head.”

This is a place where you can see God.

When Kim asked Dayne what surprised him, he first noted that he did not expect such interesting conversations with the volunteers – especially the undergrads from Notre Dame. He also shared that this work felt more like a ministry than his work as a deacon. Dayne loved the feeling of actually doing something! About The Father McKenna Center, he said, ““This is a place where you can see God.”

Gonzaga College High School Fathers’ Club

We also had support this summer from the amazing Gonzaga College High School Fathers’ Club. Their food drive is a well-coordinated, highly effective means of support for us. They not only donated an enormous amount of food – but also they helped us to sort and organize it all.

Thank you! Eagles
