Tonight! Movie Premiere: Restless Heart, 10/24

Movie Premiere – Wednesday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the University Center

Restless Heart uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of Augustine of Hippo – one of the Catholic Church’s most beloved and well-known Saints. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass – and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light.

This event is free and open to the public.

Congratulations, Dennis Rasley, PSO

Dennis Rasley, access control officer, recently completed Act 235 certification at Lehigh Carbon Community College’s Public Safety Leadership Center and took his oath of office as a Public Safety Officer (PSO) at Fr.

He earned his B.A. in U.S. History from DeSales University in 2003 and began University employment in the Facilities Department in 2004.  Always eager for increasing responsibility and challenge, he transferred to P3 this past January.
