Fr. Sanford, a USA Northeast Province Jesuit, began in the ministry of Ignatian spirituality with an internship at the Jesuit Center in Wernersville, PA in 1992. His mission later changed to parish ministry on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota. After calling Pine Ridge home for fifteen grace-filled years, he returned to New England in 2012, and his focus returned to Ignatian spirituality. He is living with secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair full-time for mobility. He is also happily committed to building a complaint-free world.
