Our Clergy

Fr. Jordan Bradshaw, O.P - Director

Fr. Jordan Bradshaw, OP, grew up in Southern Arizona, the eldest and favorite of three children, born to Charles and Elvia Bradshaw. His sisters, Rachelle and Melissa, have not forgiven their parents because of this.

His favorite animal is the Wildcat, and he entered the University of Arizona for the sole reason that it was their mascot. He also likes other animals: dogs, ravens, and eagles. He has a hard time believing God created spiders. ... continue reading

Fr. Marcin Szymanski, O.P. - Associate Director

Fr. Marcin Szymański O.P. (both name and surname rather unpronounceable but you can try with “Marchin,’ like marching, without the g…), a native of Poland, joined the staff in the Summer of 2015.

During high-school he started attending Dominican Youth Ministry in his native Warsaw. He liked it so much that he joined the Dominican Friars just after the high school at the age of 19. During his studies for a year lived in Dublin, Ireland. He returned to Ireland after his ordination, to serve the Polish community in Ireland. In 2013 he was moved to Seattle, where he served as Associate Pastor at our Blessed Sacrament Parish. From there he slowly crept into the Newman Center, and he is excited to begin his ministry here!

Fr. Marcin likes hiking, books, games (computer, board, card etc.).

Bayli Hochstein, '13 - Campus Minister

Though born in Texas, Bayli Hochstein grew up in the small town of Deming, Washington (just East of Bellingham) with her parents and two siblings. As a middle child, Bayli often found herself wanting to stand out; her brother was a hard act to follow! She became very active in extracurriculars throughout junior and senior high school - participating in fastpitch, basketball, choirs, musicals, Honor Society, FFA, and even attending Philips Exeter Academy during the summer.

However, it wasn’t until she became fully active in her youth group at St. Joseph in Ferndale that she felt at peace. ...continue reading
