Congratulations to this Year’s Service Excellence Award Winners and All Those Celebrating Service Anniversaries

employees of the year

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to publicly acknowledge the staff who have contributed to our success. Each spring we host the Service Excellence Dinner, for staff members celebrating milestone work anniversaries. It is also an opportunity for us to thank them for sharing their gifts with the DeSales community. And, as a welcome to the University, we invite new hires and their guests. This year’s dinner will be held on Tuesday, April 9.

One of the highlights of the evening is the presentation of two awards: Sue Richter, Custodian in the Gambet Center, was selected as the Support Staff Employee of the Year, and Derrick Wetzel, Dean of Enrollment Management, was selected as the Professional Staff Employee of the Year. I ask that you extend congratulations to Sue and Derrick for earning these distinctions and thank them for the valuable contributions they have made to the University over the years.

Registration Open for “Healing Our Church” Sessions

Dear Students and Colleagues,

You may recall my writing you a few weeks ago about an initiative to advance healing in our Church in the wake of clergy sexual abuse.  One effort to redress this evil is the Healing Our Church program, facilitated by trained lay people from our community to provide you with the opportunity for reflection, prayer, and conversation.  This offering is for those disciples who may not have been abused directly but are nonetheless impacted greatly by the betrayal, loss of trust, or erosion of confidence in church leaders.

Healing Our Church will consist of six sessions around the following topics:

  • Facing the truth
  • Healing our wounds
  • Rebuilding our church
  • Why do I remain Catholic?
  • We believe
  • A way forward

Here is the breakdown of what we will be offering, beginning the week of March 11:

  • Mondays: 3:15PM-4:45PM (Alacoque House)
  • Tuesdays: 6:30PM-8PM (Dooling 260)
  • Wednesdays: 5PM-6:30PM (Dooling 260)
  • Thursdays: 8AM-9:30AM (Dooling 250)

Sessions will run for six consecutive weeks and will be facilitated by Maggie Riggins, director of campus ministry, on Mondays; Christian McCormack, senior, on Tuesdays; Elizabeth Felten, assistant professor of business, on Wednesdays; and Wendy Krisak, assistant dean of students for wellness, on Thursdays.  We thank them for their generosity in leading these sessions and also for the time they gave to being trained for this service.

To register, please complete this form.

Thank you for you continued support of our Catholic, Salesian mission and efforts to strengthen it during this challenging season for our church.


Fr. Kevin Nadolski, OSFS
Vice President for Mission

Salesian Quote of the Day

“Whenever I groan within myself and think how hard it is to keep writing about love in these times of tension and strife which may at any moment become for us all a time of terror, I think to myself, “What else is the world interested in?” What else do we all want, each one of us, except to love and be loved, in our families, in our work, in all our relationships. God is Love. Love casts out fear.” ~ Dorothy Day
