2017 Alumni Day of Reflection

IMG_9238The annual Alumni Day of Reflection & Mass was held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 and celebrated by Fr. David Ducote ’04. After being introduced by Randy Oddo ’62 SA, Fr. Ducote reflected on “Man Caves or Man Deserts: Bearing the Fruits of Lent in our Daily Lives.” Fr. Ducote’s theme challenged all to continue bearing fruits of Lent even after the Lenten season will soon be completed. Like Jesus’ victory over the temptations of the devil for 40 days in the desert, we too can survive without certain vices in our daily lives. The day also consisted of personal reflection time, as well as the Way of the Cross and the Rosary led by Judge Bob Burns ’62 SA and Wayne Wellmeier ’86 respectively.  The day’s activities concluded with a Mass in the James B. Branton Chapel led by Fr. Ducote ’04 and assisted by Deacon Robert Pendzimaz ’83.  After Mass, all participants enjoyed lunch in the Bro. Mark Thornton Terrace.

Randy Oddo ’62 SA (chairman), Judge Bob Burns ’62 SA, Bro. Louis Couvillon, S.C., Bob Martin ’61 SA, Tony Melito ’76 and Wayne Wellmeier ’86 served on the committee.
