Ninety-five students enjoyed the evening with a sumptuous dinner. Fr. Gerry’s Minister Provincial, the Reverend James McCurry, OFM Conv, joined in the evenings’ festivities and shared a brief message of gratitude to the Chancellor and the students.

Sandwich ministry in October

Each month following  Thursday Mass and dinner, the SU Catholic community “pays it forward” by making sandwiches and donating them to the local Assumption Food Pantry. On Oct. 28, students made 430 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! SU Catholic would like to extend their gratitude to their students and to Sam Saunders and members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon  fraternity for their help! They are looking forward to the final sandwich-making event of the semester on Nov. 18.
