Faithful Catholic theologian to lead Denver Catholic Charities

.- In a letter dated February 19, Denver Archbishop Charles J. Chaput announced that Dr. Jonathan Reyes, former president of the Augustine Institute, will be the new CEO of Denver’s Catholic Charities.  The prelate remarked that Reyes will bring a strong commitment to the poor and a deep understanding of Catholic teaching to the position.

Prior to his work at the Augustine Institute, Reyes served as Vice President for Academic Affairs of Christendom College.  His educational background includes a Master of Arts degree in history from the University of Michigan, and a PhD in history from the University of Notre Dame.

After thanking the current staff of Catholic Charities for their efforts, Archbishop Chaput explained that Reyes “will bring a variety of strong qualities to his work for Catholic Charities: maturity, energy, intelligence, humility, a deep commitment to the poor and a great understanding of Catholic identity and social teaching.” 

“While he has much to learn about running an organization like Catholic Charities,” the archbishop continued, “he clearly has the talent and spirit to do it – and a strong staff to help him.  He has my complete confidence.”

Reyes is scheduled to begin his new position at Catholic Charities in June.  He is currently on sabbatical in Minnesota.
