Monday, December 8

In light of recent events and taking seriously Our Community, My Responsibility to work and pray for peace and justice in our world, in our nation, on our campus, and in our hearts, we invite you to join us for Mass on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Monday, December 8th at 10:30pm. This Mass will be a special opportunity to pray for the intercession of the Patroness of our Country, Mary Immaculate, for peace and justice in our country and awareness of all people's inherent dignity.

Additionally, the following is a message from the Black Student Alliance student leadership:
On behalf of the Black Student Alliance, I would like to invite you all to join us in solidarity on Monday, December 8th, 2014 for the lives lost in the recent tragedies that have occurred in our country.

We will meet outside the main entrance of the Pryz at 9:30pm and the Vigil will begin at 9:45pm as we walk silently to St. Vincent's Chapel.

Your attendance will be greatly appreciated and if you have any comments or concerns, please contact Camille Sanchez, Vice President of BSA, at


Spotlight on a Country

Each month, Dining Services will partner with a student or group of students to create a food item for lunch that is native to the students' country/culture--to be served in the Student Restaurant.

Interested?  Here's how you can participate:
*Email Emily Lucio at and give her your name (and up to three friends if you have a group), your country, and the month you would like to participate
