    Donald Maldari, S.J., is a Catholic theologian with a particular interest in ecclesiology and spirituality. His research interests are the relation between Christian art and theology, the evangelical counsels as Christian asceticism, and a reconsideration of the ministries of the Catholic sacrament of holy orders. He teaches Religious Perspectives on the Human Situation, Mystery and Symbol: the Christian Creed, Community in Christ: the Church, Understanding Catholicism, and the Creativity of Christian Art. He has been a member of the Society of Jesus since 1977. Before coming to Le Moyne he served as a high school teacher at Regis High School in New York City, assistant professor of theology at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City, associate novice master, prison chaplain in Mexico, theology professor and spiritual director in Haiti, and parish priest in a trilingual Caribbean parish in Brooklyn, N.Y. At Le Moyne, in addition to his teaching, he is director of the Sanzone Center for Catholic Studies and Theological Reflection, chaplain-in-residence in a first-year student residence, a first-year academic advisor and on the editorial board of Le Bulletin de Liaison, a theological journal that he founded in Port-au-Prince. He also participates in a service-learning course which includes on-site projects in the Commonwealth of Dominica in conjunction with the education department.
