On Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 4 p.m., the University of Saint Joseph will hold a mass to honor the 50th anniversary of the Connor Chapel of Our Lady with celebrant The Most Reverend Bishop Peter Rosazza, D.D., and University Chaplain Father Emmanuel Ihemedu.
Named for Joseph and Jane Cullen Connor, who generously funded the chapel’s construction in the 1960s, the Connor Chapel of Our Lady has served as the center for spiritual growth on campus. From housing Baccalaureate mass and Convocation to the annual Festival of Lights and weekly masses, the chapel has become a beloved campus landmark.
Now the University honors its storied history and looks ahead to the future with a 50th anniversary mass, followed by a reception with light refreshments in Bruyette Athenaeum.
In conjunction with Catholic Relief Services, USJ’s Office of Campus Ministry is holding a Refugee Drive. Attendees can drop off donations of items, including toiletries, first aid kits, and kitchen items, in the Chapel.
