Cousins Casey Norton ’16 and Tommy Gallant ’12 pose during a trip to Montserrat, a mountain in Catalonia, Spain where St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order, laid down his soldier’s weapons and began a new life devoted to study, teaching, service, faith and purpose. The two traveled for 10 days touring Barcelona and Morocco last summer. “We decided to make a special trip to Monserrat because Tom had recently graduated from Holy Cross and I was going to begin senior year,” says Norton. “It was an incredible experience being at such an important religious site and words truly can’t describe how I felt. It really made me feel connected with my faith and reinforced the concept of ‘men and women for and with others.’ ” Gallant is currently in his second year of medical school at the University of New England.
