Remembering Father Masterson
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Thomas “Bat” Masterson, S.J., a longtime administrator at the University and a beloved member of our Jesuit community. From 1976 to 2004, Father Masterson served the University in several capacities, including vice president of campus ministry. He was instrumental in the creation of the Retreat Center at Chapman Lake and the establishment of Collegiate Volunteers, which developed into the Center for Service and Social Justice. He thoroughly enjoyed participating in the University’s Search Retreat, and was a loving presence to thousands of students and alumni throughout the years. Read Father Masterson’s full obituary here.
