Gratitude…for the life of Fr. Harry “Dutch” Olivier, SJ, who passed away peacefully this morning, March 17. Please join us in prayers for his beautiful soul and sharing with those around you the many memories of Dutch touching our lives. A wonderful pastor, friend, and servant of the Lord has gone home…he is already greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

Welcome! The Arrupe Office of Faith and Justice is Brophy College Prep’s center for service and religious life. In our office, you’ll find information regarding service requirements (Freshman Experience, Sophomore Service Project, Junior Justice Project), drive opportunities (Turkey Drive, ELF Drive, Lenten Drive), retreats (Magis and Kairos), and immersion trips.
More than that though, we hope you see the Office of Faith and Justice as the heart of the campus. The OFJ exists as a social justice center: come here and talk about issues concerning the Brophy community, the Phoenix community, and the global community. We’re also a spiritual center: come here to explore your relationships with God and others. Our doors are always open.
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.” -Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
