Holy Cross alumnus Fr. Milad Selim, came back to campus on Thursday, January 22, 2013 to share his ministry experience with undergraduate seminarians. Fr. Selim, who served on CrossRoad staff during his time as student at Holy Cross, is currently the head priest at St. George Antiochian Cathedral in Worcester, MA. He was born in Baghdad, Iraq, and lived there until the age of 10, and then moved to Jordan until the age of 13. In 1998, Fr. Milad moved to Michigan with his family where he went to high school and met his wife, Khouria Nichole
Fr. Milad, who is a young parish priest pastoring a congregation of over 800 families, shared many stories and experiences ‘from the field.’ He held the students’ attention for over an hour, and ended his talk with an insightful reflection on how the Christian life and pastoral ministry involve imitating Christ’s perseverance on the cross. The talk was followed by an engaging Q&A session, in which the students received practical advice to help them explore a vocation in ministry. Fr. Milad exhorted the students to take full advantage of their time as students at Hellenic College Holy Cross.
