Calling Current Students! Big Sib Program
We are still looking for current students to be part of our Big Sib programming. You will be paired up with an incoming freshman to reach out to them and give them a warm welcome to the community! It is a low time commitment and really helps people as they transition into college. Email Amaya (amm449) to sign up or if you have any questions. Thank you for your help in making our community welcoming!
Action Alert on Physician Assisted Suicide
Message from Diocesan Life Issues: A bill allowing assisted suicide was recently passed in New Jersey and proponents of doctor-assisted suicide are pushing their agenda in NY. On May 14, they came to Albany for a lobby day to make it legal for terminally ill patients to receive life-ending prescription drugs. These dangerous drugs go home with the patient. There are no safeguards that can protect the patient (or anyone else) from illicit use of these drugs. These policies are dangerous for patients, caregivers, and vulnerable populations such as the elderly and persons who are disabled. Our Catholic faith teaches us that human life is precious and deserves protection from conception to natural death. Click

"You know well that these very hands have served my needs and my companions. In every way I have shown you that by hard work of that sort we must help the weak, and keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
