Heartfelt congratulations to these Award Recipients and to all those who participated in and helped arrange this wonderful Feast Day Liturgy, especially the staff in the Office of Campus Ministry!

Unfortunately, a very special person was unable to attend the Feast Day Liturgy this morning, and that was Brother Leonard Conway, O.S.F., Principal of St. Francis Prep, who continues to recover from surgery performed on September 18 at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY. Brother Leonard was with the gathering today in spirit, however, and he hopes to be released from the hospital in the next few days. In the meantime, please offer a prayer for his timely return to good health.
