The Syracuse University Catholic Center’s St. Thomas More Chapel was the venue for Our Lady of the Angels Province Minister Provincial ~ Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv., Vicar Provincial ~ Fr. Gary Johnson, OFM Conv. & Province Secretary ~ Br. Nick Romeo, OFM Conv., along with the rest of the Province Definitory [Br. Tom Purcell, OFM Conv., Fr. Jude DeAngelo, OFM Conv., Fr. John Koziol, OFM Conv., Fr. Christopher Dudek, OFM Conv., and Fr. Emanuel Vasconcelos, OFM Conv.] to celebrate this year’s Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, with Fr. Gerry Waterman, OFM Conv. (Catholic Chaplain for SU) and a large group of the students he serves. As the Solemnity fell on the Campus Ministry’s usual “Thursday Night Dinner” night, following the well-attended student Mass, the friars joined in the festive Italian dinner of Chicken and Eggplant Parmesan, pasta marinara, Caesar salad and blue-iced cupcakes. Many students commented later how good it was to have so many friars present and celebrating with them. It was a great way to kick off the fast-approaching festive season!
