Event Details

Start Date:  August 25, 2014
Start Time: 

noon


Location:  University Mall in the center of the campus, weather permitting, or in the University Chapel

To mark the opening of the academic year, Saint Francis University will celebrate its annual Mass of the Holy Spirit. The Mass will be celebrated by our President, Fr. Malachi Van Tassell, T.O.R. beginning at noon, on the first day of fall semester classes, Monday, August 25, 2014. 


It will be held on the University Mall in the center of the campus, weather permitting, or in the University Chapel. The Mass of the Holy Spirit gathers together the entire University family to invoke God’s blessing for inspiration, guidance and wisdom on the new school year. It helps us to rededicate ourselves to our Catholic Franciscan mission. This Mass is a time to renew friendships, welcome our new students to the University community, and voice our desire to be a Spirit-filled community. The Mass of the Holy Spirit is open to all.
