The “Salesian Spirit” Essay Contest

The Salesian Center for Faith & Culture sponsors an essay contest for the DeSales University community. Any member of the DeSales University community (faculty, administration, staff, student, or alumnus) may submit an essay. The contest takes its theme from the Church’s celebration of World Day of Social Communications, which takes place in most countries on the Sunday before Pentecost. The theme for this year is “The truth will set you free. (Jn 8:32). Fake news and journalism for peace.”
