While priesthood has remained constant, Daniel McMullin has been a Benedictine monk, a professional singer (mostly opera and oratorio), a parish priest, an associate professor of music and a university chaplain. In August, Dan was reappointed the priest-director of the Cornell Catholic Community, a role he had between 2005 and 2012. During the intervening years, 2012-2019, he was affiliated with the Office of the Dean of Students, doing interfaith work in Anabel Taylor Hall. In 2012 he also inherited the wonderful role of leading the Soup and Hope program which he relinquished when he returned to full-time work with the Catholic chaplaincy.
Dan's Jan. 16 talk, kicking off the 2020 Soup and Hope series, is about how he chooses to be hopeful in the face of life’s difficulties.
