The Diocese of Camden is pleased to announce that Alison Filion has been appointed as the New Director of Catholic Campus Ministry at Stockton University in Pomona, N.J.
“Alison’s unique experience in guiding young adults to make happy, healthy and holy life choices will serve the Stockton community well,” said Greg Coogan, Director of Youth, Young Adult & Campus Ministries for the Diocese of Camden. “As a former Fellowship of Catholic University Student missionary, her know-how will help to grow the Church’s presence on campus serving the students, faculty and staff as they continue to live and learn about their faith. Stockton University’s Catholic Campus Ministry has been serving the Catholic Community for more than 40 years, forming student leaders to embrace a life-long love of Christ and the Church.”
Prior to accepting the position as Director of Catholic Campus Ministry, Alison was a school counselor and religion teacher with Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville, Maryland.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to return to southern New Jersey and to serve the students at Stockton University,” said Alison. “College students are on a journey to discover their purpose in life and to uncover how their lives will impact the world around them. They are faced with choices on a daily basis that will have significant impacts on their futures. I am looking forward to walking with the students at Stockton on this journey. I am hopeful that together we can continue the good work already begun through Stockton’s Campus Ministry and continue forming young people ready to make a positive impact on the Church in South Jersey.”
The Catholic Spiritual director of the program, Fr. Jamie King, noted, “I am so happy to welcome Alison to Catholic Campus Ministry at Stockton. She will be a great blessing to our community. She brings with her many skills and talents as well as a great love for Christ and His Church, as well as a desire to form young people in discipleship. We look forward to working with Ali this coming year.”
Alison received her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Theology from Mount Saint Mary’s University and her Master of Arts in Counseling from Franciscan University of Steubenville.
