Our Lady of the Angels Province’s Minister Provincial, Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv. traveled to Syracuse and joined Br. Jim Moore, OFM Conv., friar Joe Krondon, OFM Conv. and Fr. Gerry Waterman, OFM Conv., on Saturday, October 29th for a pre-game marching band extravaganza, in front of Syracuse University’s (SU) Hendricks Chapel, prior to the football game, in the JMA Wireless Dome, against the University of Notre Dame (ND). Despite noble attempts at a victory, ND triumphed over SU, 41-24. After the game, there was a tailgate party on the back lawn of the Catholic Center, with Chicago donors Beth & Brian Saunders, and their son Sam. The friars were also visited by SU Chancellor Kent Syverud and his wife Dr. Ruth Chen. The post-game festivities more than made up for the difficult loss.
