I will admit that sitting down to write this was quite the challenge. Thinking back to “my first year” seems like yesterday, but so much has happened between then and now that it’s hard to comprehend.

Every Other Friday throughout the semester, we will post student reflections on different topics of faith and service. Also on these days all the intentions made through this link, will be added to our Intention book and remembered in our prayers throughout the upcoming two weeks.

This verse was one of the many my mom told me when I asked for too much, or appreciated too little. When I was younger my mom told my sisters and me that we were wealthy, yet I never understood what wealthy truly meant. At that time I believed that wealth was a substantial bank account, a large house, and expensive cars.

Below is a reflection done by Senior Eddie Finn at Evensong on September 11th. Thank you Eddie for sharing your story.
Thank you to all who came out to our opening mass on the quad. It was a big success. Also, thank you to all of the students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the La Salle family that submitted intentions to be remembered. Your intentions were remembered during the celebration and will be kept in prayer throughout the year.
La Salle University senior Matthew Roche has been named a Newman Civic Fellow for his dedication to service and outreach. Presented by Campus Compact to inspiring college student leaders, only 197 students nationwide were designated as fellows for 2014. This is the third consecutive year a La Salle student has been named a Newman Civic Fellow. “Service is a part of what it means to be human, and I use the gifts I have been blessed with and the opportunities available to me to try and help other people, because that is what needs to be done. Service is something that everyone should strive to do,” Roche commented. Congratulations Matt!

The goal of University Ministry and Service at La Salle University is to further the Catholic Identity and Lasallian mission of the University. UMAS promotes the core Lasallian values of faith, service, and community through our programs and our daily actions. We follow the example of St John Baptist de La Salle by serving those in need as well as working to educate ourselves and others about social injustices. We encourage and support the dialogue between faith and reason, interreligious dialogue, and provide opportunities for worship, study, retreat, community service, justice action, student leadership, and spiritual direction. Through an atmosphere of fellowship and outreach, UMAS strives to meet individual students where they are, introduce them to a life of service, and help students become their best selves.
