Dr. O’Connell was last year’s commencement speaker and gives an engaging, personal, and moving account of his work caring for homeless men and women on the Boston streets. Dr. O’Connell embodies the Jesuit mission to work for and with others and has had an enormous impact on the most vulnerable population in Boston.  His organization (BHCHP) is accepting interns, fellows, and volunteers to work with homeless population, and this an excellent opportunity to learn more about this work.  He works with several Holy Cross alumni as well.  His book, "Stories from the Shadows:  Reflections of a Street Doctor" is a highly moving account of the men and women he serves.
