Searching for Meaning at the Mountain

Chris Domes was one of the first two summer student interns at the Mountain in 1985. For 90 days, Chris spent time in prayer, solitude, fellowship and working with Fr. Dan Riley, ofm, and Fr. Dan Hurley, ofm, to establish the Mountain that first summer, welcoming our first guests to the land.

Chris is now president of Neumann University. In his 2021 commencement address, he tells the story of his time at the Mountain that summer, five truths he learned and how that time transformed his life.
