Len Heckwolf

My wife Helen and I joined St. Ignatius in 2017, one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. The two years we have spent at St. Ignatius have been really wonderful for our personal and spiritual lives and I hope we have given back at least half as much as we have received. I try to focus my energies in two areas, those in need and our environment. I lead the Environmental Justice group within the Justice and Peace Committee, work on the van on Sunday nights for Loaves and Fishes, and make casseroles at Viva House. Our most recent project has been implementing the parish’s composting program with a focus on reducing our environmental footprint by reducing the amount of trash that goes to landfills. We are also in the process of assessing how the parish can use less energy to save money and improve our environmental impact at the same time. I grew up in Waverly at St. Bernard’s Parish. Helen and I have three children, Joseph, Philip, and Sara Anne all of whom live in the Baltimore area, which is great after a career that took us all over the country. I was a Senior Vice President at JP Morgan Chase in New York and have bachelors and masters degrees in Environmental Science and Geography.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1522342137657{margin-right: 0px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”19044″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]


Joseph Hillery

My name is Joseph Hillery. Originally from Massachusetts, I was transferred to Maryland while serving in the Army. After 9 years in the Army, I spent 3 years with a small Silver Spring software firm and then 35 years as a software engineer at Westinghouse/Northrop Grumman, where I met and married my wife, Carol. We joined St. Ignatius in 1991 and worked with RCIA for many years. Carol died in 2014. I am involved with the Loaves and Fishes ministry and am a sanctuary minister, eucharistic minister and usher. Most recently, I joined the Hospitality Committee. I am a member of the Racial Justice subcommittee of the Justice and Peace ministry. I have one daughter and one granddaughter, who will be 21 in December. I love the parish: the clergy, the parishioners, the building, the music. In viewing the slate, I think they would all make better pastoral council members than I (a “Yes Man”), but here I am.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1522342137657{margin-right: 0px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”19045″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
