Jesuit Health Care
Fr. James Riley, SJ, (left) has joined the staff at Colombiere Center in Clarkston, Mich., where he will assist Fr. John Libens, SJ, (right) the superior. Fr. Riley previously served as assistant to the president at University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy.
Fr. Charles Hofmann, SJ, has been missioned to pray for the Society of Jesus at Colombiere Center in Clarkston, Mich. He previously served in pastoral ministry and as a therapist at Xavier University in Cincinnati.
Father Ed Sthokal, SJ, had never considered becoming a retreat director; he never even specifically trained for it. The plan for the young Jesuit was to teach English literature, perhaps go on to run a university department in the field. So how did he end up spending 58 years as a retreat director at Demontreville Retreat House in Lake Elmo, Minnesota?
