Please welcome to Whosoever Desires a new blogger, Patrick Gilger. Paddy Gilger, SJ is a Jesuit of the Wisconsin Province studying theology in Bekeley, California. But he wasn’t born in Ireland no matter how many “d’s” you add to his first name. He’s from Minnesota along with about a dozen other states, and has been a Jesuit since 2002. Paddy moved to California after spending three years as the Volunteer Coordinator at Red Cloud Indian School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He’s interested in all music that takes its clue from Bob Dylan, follows too many sporting events too seriously, and recently grew a mustache. He’s very grateful to be so close to ordination and to have the chance to write for this blog.
Please welcome him with all of the witty, quirky and intelligent comments that are typical of this blog.
