Our Board Members

The Sacred Story Institute board understands that third-millennium evangelization demands a seamless integration between the classic spiritual disciplines of the Church and the best intellectual disciplines of scholars and scientists thinking with the Church. This was St. Ignatius’ vision and it is the vision and mission of all who serve as board members, researchers, and advisors of SSI.
