Rev. Bishop Joseph Perry kicked off Mission Week 2024 at Sunday Mass at the Church of the Gesu. We were blessed to hear his homily and begin Mission Week on the right foot. During Bishop Perry’s homily, he expressed an insightful sentiment as we were reminded to Act with Faith today and every day.
“The best way to feel better about yourself is to find someone or something to help.”
Events will be held throughout the week as our campus community continues to Act with Faith.
