Fr. Mark Mossa, S.J. has spent most of his ministry career—as a Jesuit, and before—in ministry with youth and young adults. Most recently, he served as Director of Campus Ministry at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL. In addition to his priestly ministry, he also moonlights as a teacher, writer, and pop culture aficionado. He enjoys conversation about everything from theology, philosophy and history to sports and Stranger Things. He is as passionate about finding God in all things, as he is about helping others to let God find them in their everyday life. Having spent most of his life in the northeast and southern United States, he is excited about the new challenges and opportunities of life and ministry in the upper Midwest, Michigan football and making a home for himself, and the Catholic students at St. Mary.

Carol Konczal joined SMSP in January 2007. A self proclaimed jack-of-all-trades, her role as administrative assistant/receptionist is a great position for her because there’s never a dull moment! A native Michigander and cradle Catholic, Carol left both for several years and decided to “come back home” after exploring new things. She and her husband Jeff have two adult children.

Amy is grateful for the opportunity to return to her St. Mary’s family. Born and raised in the Flint area, Amy first moved to Ann Arbor to study sociology at UM (’13). As an undergraduate, she found a home here at St. Mary. After graduation, Amy volunteered for two years in Santiago, Chile through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Upon her return to the U.S., she began to work at St. Mary as a Campus Ministry Associate. Now she feels incredibly blessed to be able to accompany St. Mary’s beautiful Hispanic/Latino community.
