Happy Advent! This month people of faith watch and wait for the coming of the Messiah, looking forward to the end of time and looking backward to the Nativity. In-between we strive to live these days with joy.
In the Catholic Church, Advent 2014 also begins a year-long celebration of Consecrated Life. The Oblates of St. Francis de Sales who administer DeSales University are one such religious congregation, with a ► spiritual story that begins four centuries ago! Look for future events from the Salesian Center that celebrate this living legacy.
In the meantime, we wish you and your families all the joys of the season. God Bless and Be Well.
Fr. Thomas Dailey, OSFS

"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."
