Julie Orio, the new vice-provost of student life.

On July 28, the Jesuit University of San Francisco announced the appointment of Julie Orio as the new vice-provost of student life.

From the press release announcing the appointment:

Orio has served as interim vice provost of student life at USF since August 2015, where she has led a team of approximately 140 full-time professionals and 25 graduate students to enliven the university’s Jesuit mission […] She will begin her permanent role immediately.

The release continued:

Beyond her responsibilities at USF, since 2006 she has been actively involved in the Women’s Community Clinic in San Francisco, serving as board member and chair.

The press release does not mention that the Women’s Community Clinic provides birth control, ‘emergency contraception,’ and ‘medication abortion.’ The Women’s Health Services’ page on the Women’s Community Clinic’s website page describes medication abortion: “medication abortion is a way to terminate an early pregnancy by using medications. It’s often called the ‘abortion pill’, and it’s an option for women during their first ten weeks of pregnancy.”

It is not the first time USF and the Women’s Community Clinic have partnered. In the March 8, 2010 article ‘Abortionfest at USF’, CalCatholic reported that one of the featured speakers at USF’s 2010 Global Women’s Rights Forum was Dr. Eve Zaritsky, then-medical Director of the Women’s Community Clinic.

Curiously, the forum was sponsored in part by the Theology and Religious Studies Department.

  1. Yawn. What would shock the world would be to learn of a Jesuit school that actually believed in Catholicism. Now that would be banner headlines.

  2. USF: University of Satanic Formation.

    • FrMichael says:

      I hope you don’t mind if I steal this in my conversations with parishioners considering where their kids might go to college.

      • Go ahead and use it; I don’t own it. I just thought it was clever.

        I have one for LMU too: Lucifer’s Modernist University.

        • FrMichael says:

          I have one devout parish family where the son is a senior at LMU and the daughter is an incoming freshman at USF. We’ll find out if her solid religious upbringing (including one of the few religiously-solid parochial schools) will hold out against the Jesuit madness.

  3. Let’s be honest, USF is not really a Catholic institution except in name only. No reason to be surprised when those in control do things against the magisterium of the Church. The best recourse is not to donate money to the school and not to allow any son or daughter to attend the school. As I have said many times before, I left after one semester and went to the Angelicum in Rome.

  4. I looked up the word Provost and it means “chief” or someone “in charge of” so if this womans title is “Provost of life” maybe it is totally accurate.

  5. Yes more of the unending stream of filth news coming from the most apostate of all Jesuit schools, USF. But where there used to be outrage and shock, based on other comments here, the reaction is largely boredom. I think people have given up, or it’s been so long since there was any critical mass of faithful Catholic alumni from the school, that too few remain living to do anything about it.

    Not a Catholic college. Not a Catholic order. Not a Catholic Women’s Community Clinic. Not a Catholic vice-provost. Not Catholic news. Why does this pretense
    of Catholic order continue? When will parents WAKE UP? Stop sending your kids to ‘Jesuits’ schools. Enough.

    We could Sell the Land – Pay off some of the Financial (Not Human) Cost from the Homosex Ephebophile Abuse of Boys – and Fund Catholic Education in places where the Twysted Sisterhood isn’t using the money to trash the Church.

    Oh – and Fire the whole Misandry (Hatred of Men & Boys, Masculinity & Normal Heterosexuality) machine entirely..

    Make them get real jobs worthy of the credentials – flipping burgers, until replaced by machines too.,
