Belvedere Welcomes

New Rector - Fr. Paddy Greene S.J.

I am delighted to announce that the Provincial has appointed a new Rector, Fr. Paddy Greene, with immediate effect.
He has rich experience as he assumes the task. He taught Irish and English in Coláiste Iognáid while also serving as Spiritual Father and subsequently as Career Guidance Teacher. He became Headmaster in 1980.

In 1988 he went to work on the Provincial’s staff and, two years later, took up the position of co-ordinator of a new training course (later an M.A. course) in school chaplaincy and pastoral care in Mater Dei Institute of Education in Dublin.

For the last ten years Paddy has worked with JUST (Jesuit University Support and Training) in Ballymun, which helps people from an educationally deprived area to gain access to university and graduate with degrees.

Fr. Greene SJ was introduced to Staff and students on Friday 19th May and his first event was to celebrate Mass at Rhetoric Graduation on Sunday 21st May.

The College really appreciates the support of the Province and understand that their resources in terms of Jesuit personnel are limited and their continued provision of a Rector is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Gerry Foley - Headmaster
