From the Campus Minister
Wave of Faith
Approximately once a month during the school year, the Director of Campus Ministry communicates with the “Green Wave” community through his “Wave of Faith” posts on Schoology. These posts are a way to highlight important Campus Ministry events and news, as well as to provide spiritual encouragement to the students. Here are the most recent posts.
Half a century ago, on Saturday, July 16, 1966, more than a hundred religious dignitaries and hundreds of lay friends filled the nave of the Abbey Church to celebrate the formal dedication of the Abbey Church and the new monastery of St. Mary's Abbey. Fifty years later to the day, Saturday, July 16, 2016, another large gathering of religious dignitaries and lay friends joined the monks of St. Mary's Abbey for Vespers to commemorate this remarkable milestone.
Abbot Richard Cronin presided at Vespers, which also included monks from Newark Abbey and St. Vincent Archabbey, motherhouse of St. Mary's Abbey. Following Vespers was a joyous reception in the Estabrook Dining Hall. On display were historical photographs and memorabilia of the Abbey. After Abbot Richard welcomed the assembled guests, Fr. Benet Caffrey, abbey archivist, provided a historical commentary. Emeritus Abbot Giles Hayes and Fr. Michael Tidd, abbey treasurer, shared with those in attendance the monks' hopes and dreams for the next fifty years.
Many thanks to all who joined us for this wonderful celebration, and those who will help us continue the celebration.
All current sophomores and juniors are eligible to be a Retreat Team leader and Service Coordinator next year. Please consider applying for either (or BOTH!) of these important leadership positions at Delbarton. The applications were due to Mr. Hajduk by Friday, April 29.
"Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give." (Matt 10:8) Remember your own retreat experiences and the way your team leaders gave of themselves to you; recall the many ways that God has blessed you in your life; and make a decision to apply for these positions and give in gratitude for all you have received!
