Chaplaincy to the National Alumni Association

Members of the Office of Mission and Ministry, the two Dominican Chaplains to the National Alumni Association, Fr. John S. Peterson, O.P. '57, and his Associate, Fr. J. Stuart McPhail, O.P. '61, have each spent the greater portion of their priestly lives and ministries at Providence College, Fr. Peterson in the Treasurer's Office, Financial Aid, Admissions, and Alumni Relations, and Fr. McPhail, in Student Services (for eighteen years as Vice President), and now Alumni Relations.
During their student years, thousands and thousands of current PC alumni and alumnae crossed paths with Fr. Peterson and Fr. McPhail 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.
