Thanksgiving Prayer


This Thanksgiving let those of us who have much and those who have little gather at the welcoming table of the Lord. At this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike remember that we are called to serve one another and to walk together in God's gracious world. With thankful hearts we praise our God who like a loving parent denies us no good thing.

Stan Drongowski, O.P. as the new chaplain and pastor to our campus community.

Ordained in 1979, Fr. Drongowski found his vocation to priestly ministry during his undergraduate studies at Kent State University. >Read More
