Brett is an Australian Jesuit scholastic preparing for ordination. In 2020 he completed his STL degree at Boston College’s School of Theology and Ministry with a thesis on the ethics of migration and border control policy in Catholic Social Teaching. Before entering the Society of Jesus in 2014, Brett worked in public policy with the Australian Government. As a Jesuit he has worked in policy advocacy with Jesuit Social Services, Melbourne, and as a support worker accompanying newly-arrived migrants. Brett is interested in exploring how the Church can engage more constructively with governments and policymakers to better promote the common good.
