This year at the 2nd Annual Rosecrance Symposium, we asked Father Jim Swarthout to be the Chaplin for F.O.O.L.S. International. Father Jim was honored and looks forward to meeting everyone at FDIC this year at the bash and at the Convention in Seattle.


The Rev. James E. Swarthout is the Director of Clergy and Alumni Relations at Rosecrance. In addition to his longtime experience as an Episcopal priest for the Diocese of Chicago, Swarthout has professional credentials in social work and addictions counseling. Swarthout has over 30 years of recovery work as a priest with addiction and mental health support. Swarthout’s résumé of community service is lengthy.
