Thank you!

Sunday, Mar. 16, 2008
I received the news of Fr. Locatelli's upcoming departure from Santa Clara and just wanted to write to say what a privilege it was to attend Santa Clara under his leadership. I attended SCU from 1997 to 2003 receiving a BA in English and an MA in Spirituality. I am now in seminary and an MDiv candidate at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I crossed paths with Fr. Locatelli many times and found him always open, approachable and engaging. I remember times that I waited in Nobili for Fr. Rynes (my spiritual advisor and mentor) to come down for a dinner appointment; and Fr. Locatelli would take the time to speak and ask if I had been helped. I just wanted to reach out and tell you that there is someone on the East Coast who feels excited and sad at the same time. My best wishes to you Father.
