Dear Parents and Friends,
Our beautiful campus at 1200 Jacob Lane is as active as ever! We just celebrated our Homecoming Weekend with a variety of events such as the Alumni Guys Night Out, the Alumni BBQ, a home football game, water polo tournament, student dance, and the Alumni Family Liturgy. During the Alumni Family Liturgy, Fr. Aaron Engebretson, S.J., preached on the meaning of Luke’s account of the cleansing of the ten lepers who were healed from a distance by Jesus (Luke 17:11-19). Fr. Aaron shared with us that we are all worthy of God’s healing love, regardless of where we are. Of the ten, one man returned, approaching Jesus to experience God’s love more intimately; he could touch his cloak, hear his words, see him up close–God in the flesh. In like manner, our alumni were invited to return to this community at Jesuit where they encountered the amazing power of God’s love. Fr. Aaron’s message has stuck with me and it echoes what we tell our students daily–that they are worthy of God’s unwavering and unconditional love.
