In January, Jack McCormick, a graduate of Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA, and current student at Loyola University in Baltimore, MD, began an internship at the Generalate office.
“There is a course through my school called ‘Theology Internship’ and when I heard about it my mind instantly jumped to the Generalate Office,” stated Jack.
“I always wanted to interact with the office, being in Baltimore for college, and this provided me with the perfect opportunity to do so.”
Originally from North Easton, MA, Jack waits tables at a Cape Cod restaurant in the summer, and studies Theology as an undergrad at Loyola University Maryland. Currently, he is a student in the Accelerated Master’s of Theological Studies program and serves as the Vice President of Social Affairs in Loyola’s Student Government Association. He previously served as a coordinator for Loyola’s 15th Kairos Retreat.
“My Xaverian education at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA, taught me a lot about what it meant to be zealous for the things you take pride in as well as being an authentic and genuine leader,” he said. “It also inspired me to hold myself to a higher standard of excellence and constantly push myself to my full potential.”
Jack said that his Xaverian education taught him the value of community, gathering in fellowship, and being present with others by forming authentic relationships. His favorite part about being an intern has been the people he’s worked with and the opportunity to explore the field of education.
“Dr. Ben Horgan, XBSS Formation Director, and Dr. Patrick Slattery, XBSS Executive Director, were able to provide me with such a unique opportunity that is not ordinarily available in the field, and it has helped me to further discover things about my passion for serving and ministering to others through a professional role in education.”
Jack loves biking, being active in his community, watching high-quality films, reading, and playing basketball. He dreams of changing the world for the better in some way, shape, or form, by working in educational institutions and having a tangible impact on the lives of others through ministry and education.
Congratulations, Jack! I know you’ll do great things in life. You already have!
