JUNE 2015

Dear Friends,

The summer shift has begun. Our largest Commencement ever has sent the Class of 2015 into the world ... including our Events Coordinator, ► Lore McFadden-Westwood, who received her B.A. degree in Theology. 

Other students residing on campus have moved out.  The ► PA Shakespeare Festival company has moved in for another exciting season.  Construction workers have descended on campus fto undertake a few major projects.

Amid these annual transitions, the Salesian Center remains open and active!  Stay tuned for some summer happenings, including our last Ethics Breakfast of the academic year (► on June 4), a special presentation in collaboration with the Shakespeare Festival (on July 29), and a variety of activities in our preparation for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.

  Fr. Thomas Dailey, OSFS

Inspiring Ideas ... 

Pope Francis, on Trinity Sunday 2013: 


"The Holy Spirit, gift of the Risen Jesus, conveys divine life to us and thus lets us enter into the dynamism of the Trinity, which is a dynamism of love, of communion, of mutual service, of sharing.  A person who loves for the very joy of love is a reflection of the Trinity.  A family in which each person loves and helps one another is a reflection of the Trinity.  A parish in which each person loves and shares spiritual and material effects is a reflection of the Trinity.


And, we might add, a religious community in which each confrere loves and sacrifices himself and shares all things in common is a reflection of the Trinity.


"Wake Up the World" commentary


Pope John Paul II"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."


- Pope John Paul II
