Thomas Doran

Omaha, Nebraska

Thomas, 22, was first exposed to the Society of Jesus at Creighton Preparatory School in Omaha where he ran track and cross-country. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a major in theology and minors in philosophy, Catholic social tradition and Italian. There, he participated in the Rome International Scholars Program, which allowed him to intern with the Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation and study at the Pontifical Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies. Many conversations with religious and others influenced his decision to enter the Jesuits, but the most impactful were those with homeless people, migrants and refugees in Omaha, at the U.S.-Mexico border and across the Mediterranean Sea Basin. His favorite hobbies are centered on time in nature — running, fishing, backpacking, disc golfing and yardwork. (USA Midwest Province)
