semester back at Saint Viator High School, this time as Vice President of Viatorian Mission and Identity.

“It’s my fourth tour of duty,”  quipped Br. John, who first met the Viatorians at his parish, St. Thomas More Catholic Community, located just outside of Las Vegas.

Since joining the Viatorian Community in 2005, he has served across all parts of the Chicago Province, from St. Patrick Parish in Kankakee, to his work as a youth minister at the Viatorian mission in Belize, and at Saint Viator High School, where he served as co-director of Campus Ministry.

Just last year, Br. John was appointed to serve in a leadership position on the Provincial Council, while also heading up vocation ministry. He spent the last 18 months at Maternity BVM Parish in Bourbonnais as coordinator of its young adult ministry.

Br. John Eustice receives a round of applause after being introduced for the first time as vice president of Viatorian identity and mission.

Back at Saint Viator High School, Br. John will help out with Campus Ministry, but his new role moves him into the administration overseeing many of the school’s programs and making sure that the Viatorian mission is always in focus.

So far, so good. On only his second day on the job, Br. John represented the administration during a reception with business leaders who support the high school’s Summer Work Study & Internship Program. He was introduced to the crowd, who gave him a warm welcome.
