When Jason Wilhite graduated from Saint Viator High School in 2015, his involvement with the Viatorian Community only deepened — to the point where he is now back at the school working in Campus Ministry and discerning his vocation as a Viatorian associate.

His involvement with the community and how it grew is the subject of a Q & A in the latest edition of the Viatorian newsletter, Viator.

This week, Jason is helping to direct the Kairos retreat at Saint Viator High School, where no doubt he will share his faith story as one of the adult witness talks. He has plenty of material he could share, from his own experience of being educated by Viatorians, and starting a local chapter of Pencils for Promise and describing its mission at the Viatorian Youth Congress; to traveling to the border with a group led by Fr. Corey Brost, CSV, and now working back home with young asylum seekers at Viator House of Hospitality.

Jason now serves on a Young Adult Advisory Board for the Viatorians, where he regularly suggests ways in which to draw more young people in the Viatorian mission.

“They are helping us engage this emerging generation,” said Br. John Eustice, CSV, Vocation Ministry Director.

Here’s how Jason put its, in his own words.
