Fr. Charlie Allen is a living example of a contemplative in action. His wit and wisdom have, in the Ignatian tradition, provided students, alumni and the larger community with insights reflecting God’s work in their daily lives. With humility and humor, Fr. Allen walks faithfully with Christ and forms relationships with individuals and communities who seek to find grace in their connections with God and each other.
