Assistant Director for Retreats and Spirituality
Benjamin Mead joined the Office of Mission & Ministry as the Assistant Director for Retreats & Spirituality Programs in September 2019.
Before arriving at Iona, Benjamin worked in student affairs at various Catholic and private institutions in the Northeast. While working at each institution, Benjamin was particularly interested in spirituality-focused programming efforts, whether through involvement in liturgical ministry or via formal trainings with students. A certified spiritual director, Benjamin appreciates the companionship experienced in spiritual direction.
As a native New Englander, Benjamin relishes any chance to be by the ocean or enjoy a lobster roll.
