Easter Time Greetings
During this time of questions, concern and worry, we can identify with the apostles in the upper room after the crucifixion. They were confused and felt their world was crashing down around them after the death of Jesus. With the loss of life, jobs, social distancing and no church services in most places, many of us also feel as though our futures are very insecure.
Just like the apostles in the upper room, we await the appearance of Christ. We need to remember that he is present among us whether we gather together in church or not. The risen Christ is among us whether we are able to gather physically as family or not. The risen Christ reaches out to us through the first responders, the grocery store workers and all other essential services workers. We need only stay focused on the presence of Christ within us and around us whether physically or virtually. Every time someone helps us or we help others it is Christ saying, “Peace be with you.”
Our wish and prayer for all of our alumni and friends is that you are safe and may experience the resurrection through Christ’ presence in yourselves and in one another during the Triduum and Easter Season this year.

Due to Shelter-In-Place, Campus Remains Closed
Until the Shelter-In-Place order has been lifted, the campus will remain closed. Most staff are operating from home with physical plant employees working in shifts. It’s mowing season, and the staff is working to make the grounds beautiful again! Our hope and prayer is to return to campus in May and continue the good work bringing our beloved College back to life. Stay safe and well!
