A Jesuit Ministering in Body Armor

Jesuit Brother John Fava has many names.

“BroJo,” “Brother,” “Brother John” and on occasion (when wearing a clerical collar) “Padre.” He’s earned many of these nicknames while serving as a chaplain to the St. Louis Police Department. In this capacity, he offers spiritual and personal guidance to police officers and their families, both Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

Brother Fava sat down with National Jesuit News to discuss this unique and rewarding ministry.
