In addition to celebrating Mass and facilitating the sacraments for the Catholic community at SU, Fr. Gerry Waterman, OFM Conv. and the Catholic Center provides many opportunities for enrichment and service, such as the weekly “Thursday Night Dinners,” when the students and greater community gather for Mass (above), free dinner & dessert, and fellowship. On the last Thursday of each month, the evening concludes with a Service Initiative, such as making sandwiches for the clients served by Assumption Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen (an outreach of our Syracuse, NY pastoral ministry – Assumption Church) and by the Samaritan Center on W State Street, in Syracuse. This month, the Sandwich Ministry (below) took place on the 3rd Thursday, since the last Thursday in November is Thanksgiving in the USA.
