Location: Dayton, Ohio, United States

My name is Fr. Paul Fitzpatrick. I live and work at the University of Dayton. I coordinated a program for the academic training of the Permanent Deacon Candidates and their wives at Chaminade University in Hawaii for nine years. I had a sabbatical year, first semester I served for nine weeks in Queretaro, MX helping at a parish and five months in Amman, Jordan teaching ESL courses to Iraqi, Syrian and Sudanese refugees through Jesuit Refugee Services and living with the Jesuits. I will be working here at the University primarily in Campus Ministry and the VLCFF. I hope to engage in Christian Muslim Dialogue through Campus Ministry if some forum can be worked out. After a number of trips to the Near East, Israel primarily but also Jordan, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon, a number of times, I would like to create some trust and fraternity between different cultures, religions and peoples.
