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.

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.
"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
