Compassion and Courage from Catholics in the Time of AIDS

Stories from SJA: The AIDS Pandemic. In the mid 1980's, both Fr. DeBruycker and Fr. Cassidy, along with many members of our SJA community, stepped up to provide care and support to those who were dying of AIDS. As we prepared for our visit with Michael O'Loughlin (author of "Hidden Mercy: AIDS, Catholics, and the Untold Stories of Compassion in the Face of Fear"), we filmed interviews with both Frs. Jim, and with Ron Joki, who helped lead SJA in establishing Grace House, an AIDS hospice, on our campus. Although the event has passed, we still have the interviews on our YouTube channel.
