Fr. Lingan Speaks at John Carroll Society Brunch
On Sunday, January 8, Gonzaga President Father Joseph E. Lingan, S.J. '75 spoke at the John Carroll Society's January Mass and Brunch, which recognizes members of the academic community, and this year fell on the day that the Church celebrates Jesus' baptism.
Named after the first Catholic bishop in the United States, the John Carroll Society is an organization of Catholic professionals dedicated to enhancing spiritual, intellectual, and social fellowship—in service to the Archbishop of Washington.
The brunch, which was preceded by Mass at St. Patrick's Church, also fell on the 75th birthday of Msgr. Peter Vaghi '66. Pictured here are Gonzaga alumni who attended the event, from left to right: Griffin Belson '20, Hon. James Belson '49, Chip Lacey '71, Fr. Lingan '75, Matt Carroccio '96, Msgr. Peter Vaghi '66, John McCarthy '71, and William Malloy '71, as well as current Gonzaga student Bobby Lannan '26.
