Navy Chaplain's in Port (Source)
Lt. Com. Fr. Robert Keane, SJ, has had a busy career. He served with marines during Desert Storm, helped with first confessions and communions for the naval communities in Gaeta and Naples in Italy, and led sailors and marines on pilgrimages to Ignatian sites in Spain. Once he said mass for some Swiss Guards and then hosted them for lunch and a tour of the USS Laboon (named after Fr. Jake Laboon, SJ, a WWII sub officer and later navy chaplain) at the Italian port of Civitavecchia.
He has also read letters of St. Paul to sailors and Marines in the amphitheater where Paul himself preached in Ephesus, Turkey, and he has translated French for Moroccan refugees lost in the Mediterranean whom his ship picked up.
He has had many other adventures as chaplain for the U.S. Navy's Sixth Fleet, based in Gaeta, Italy, having served on more than 24 ships since signing on in 1989. Since last June he's been on dry land, serving as a chaplain at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, tending to the spiritual needs of midshipmen, faculty, staff, and their families.
He is not the only Jesuit in uniform: two others on active duty are Fr. Jack McLain, with the army at Ft. Bragg, N.C., and Fr. Paul Shaughnessy, with the navy in Hawaii. Other Jesuits are reserve chaplains, including Frs. Larry Smith and Mike Barber, both with the navy.
