Greg Spofford (’03) and wife, Vicki (pictured), live in Little Falls, MN and have four adult children who are sources of great joy. He and Vicki are transitioning from the workforce to volunteer ministry where the Holy Spirit leads. Greg previously worked as the Coordinator of Volunteers with the Little Falls Community Schools (Little Falls, MN) and as a Chaplain at St. Croix and Hartland Hospices (St. Cloud and Brainerd, MN Areas). Greg continues to combine social justice ministry with ecumenical efforts in and around the St. Cloud Diocese. He is excited to serve as Co-Chair of the SOT/Sem Alumni Council in 2024. “Come join us in small ways in building up the Body of Christ!”

Alumni Council goals are to associate more closely with Collegeville and other alumni, explore networking and educational opportunities, and build community. Future opportunities for alumni to connect will be shared via the SOT/Sem website and email announcements – check back for more information on those events.
