Fr. Pat Conroy SJ, a GU alum, has been nominated by Speaker John Boehner to be Chaplain of the House of Representatives. After some temporary kerfuffles, the way to confirmation seems to have been cleared. Some of you may have come to know Fr. Conroy in various assignments throughout the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus.


In some ways it strikes me as a little bit of a surprise nomination. Although Boehner is Jesuit-educated (Xavier), their political views strike me as being pretty different.

I'm hoping that Mr. Boehner is much more of a pragmatist than many think , and that someday Congress will go about the peoples business in a real bi-partisan mannner .
