This year, on Tuesday, September 5, students, faculty and staff, gathered for this celebration, prayerfully reflecting on the year of study, formation, and growth that lies ahead. Father Stephen Burr celebrated the Mass, during which new faculty members Rev. Brian Meldrum, Rev. Joseph Kirkconnell and Dr. May Bluestein took the Oath of Fidelity.
