Father Warren Savage was appointed the University’s Catholic chaplain last September and has been warmly greeted by staff and students.
In addition to his work on campus, Father Savage also lectures at the College of Our Lady of the Elms in Chicopee, where he teaches Contemporary Christian Ethics, the Ethics and Spirituality of Compassion, the Letters of St. Paul and Foundational Theology.
He works with the spiritual advisor and the Newman Club at Amherst College and leads retreats through the Diocese of Springfield. He spends much of his time volunteering, between his work for Hands Together, Inc., a Catholic mission that helps raise money for the poor in Haiti, and his work for Take and Eat, a nonprofit organization that provides meals for the homebound elderly free of charge.
Father Savage’s main goal for the Interfaith Center is to foster an environment of “respect, compassion and dialogue.”
