Fr. Ramesh Richards SJ

Rector of The Cardoner Network 

Fr. Ramesh was the Assistant Director of The Cardoner Network from 2014 to 2016 and returned as the Rector of the ministry in 2020. He has a wide range of chaplaincy experiences in high school, university, hospital and prison settings. He is particularly interested in helping young people develop their friendship with Jesus Christ through the Spiritual Exercises of St.Ignatius.
