Character U. Mentor of the Month

At our Character U. monthly keynote we will announce a Mentor of the Month – one of your mentors who has gone above and beyond the call of duty for Character U.  If you believe your mentor needs to be recognized, gather your friends and start sending emails!  Your last day to nominate someone is Friday October 14. Simply email your nomination and why you think they deserve the award to  The “why” is very important, because the more compelling the nomination the more consideration that particular mentor will have.  The first winner will be announced at the keynote speaker, Anthony Robles, October 19 at 3:00p.m.  Thank you for your help!

From Campus Ministry…

  • Tuesday Evening Confessions—tonight—Fr. John O’Neill, OSFS will be celebrating the sacrament of Reconciliation in Connelly chapel beginning at 7 pm until all confessions are heard. Please note that there will be NO scheduled Confessions on Tuesday, October 11, the night we return from Pacer Break. As always, confessions are available on a drop-in basis at any time  with Fr. Hanley in his office in McShea or with any priest at any mutually convenient time.
  • Due to the beginning of Pacer Break this coming Friday, there will be no Eucharistic Exposition on Friday, October 7
  • Due to the Pacer Break, there will only be the 12:30 pm Mass on campus on Sunday, October 9. Because weekend Masses are scheduled to respond to university events, the Mass times and locations do vary within a given semester. The schedule of Masses for the entire academic year are listed on the Campus Ministry web-pages under “Liturgy/Prayer.” A printed version of that schedule has been available in Connelly chapel and outside the campus ministry offices since mid-August. Remember, that there is an 8 am Mass at the Sacred Heart Villa on Station Avenue, just pass the tennis courts.
