WELCOME! The Rensselaer Newman Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of Tracy Watson as the Student Spiritual Advisor for our students. Below is a note from Tracy:
Hello, my name is Tracy Watson. I am happy to begin accompanying you on our walk with Christ. A bit about me: I am a mother of three adult children and two elementary school aged grandchildren. I have been a public high school Social Studies teacher for many years now, having served as an athletic coach and club advisor too. This year finds me learning the ropes of teaching to both in-person and remote students: like you, I am breathing deeply, and taking it one day at a time. In 2019, I completed a Masters of Divinity degree through St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry- Albany Extension, and am currently engaged in ongoing Intercultural Studies through Catholic Theological Union. I am fascinated by the intersections of the Gospel, cultures and religions, social justice, and spiritual well-being! Over the last five years or so I have been actively engaged with the Sisters of St. Joseph in sharing community life and ministry, most recently having spent seven weeks ministering among the refugee community in El Paso. Please reach out to me at spiritual.advisorCCC@gmail.com. Soon you will also be able to reach me by leaving a voicemail at (518) 274-7793 Ext 11, and I will connect with you as soon as I am able. I look forward to getting to know you!
