On the Retirement of Fr. Jim Socias – Founder of the St. Josemaria Institute

Dear Friends:

The Board and Staff of the St. Josemaria Institute express their gratitude and appreciation to Fr. Jim Socias on the occasion of his retirement. As the St. Josemaria Institute’s founder, Fr. Jim was vital to establishing our mission and overseeing our growth and advancement since our foundation in 2006. He also served as a Board Member for 15 years and has been an integral part of all of our programs and outreach.

We are deeply grateful for Fr. Jim’s vision and love for the St. Josemaria Institute. He leaves an important legacy which will always be recognized in the history of the institute.

On this occasion, we invite you to join us in wishing Fr. Jim the warmest best wishes and keeping him in your prayers during this time of transition and retirement. With the words of St. Josemaria, Fr. Jim encourages us to pray: “My Lord and my God: into your hands I abandon the past and the present and the future, what is small and what is great, what amounts to little and what amounts to a lot, things temporal and things eternal.”
