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.
This is a video done by Molly Mahon, a student who participated in Project Mapendo this year. The trip traveled to Browning, MT to volunteer at the De La Salle Blackfeet School located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
This video features a special performance at the Final Sunday Mass of the 2013-2014 school year at La Salle as we bid farewell to all our seniors!
Have a wonderful Summer and we’ll see you in the Fall!

This Lent individuals on campus have taken part in the CRS Rice Bowl program. During Lent students gathered every Wednesday to watch a video, discuss and pray. The videos where from countries that CRS is involved in: Kenya, Dominican Republic, Philippines, and Haiti. Each week the video, discussion and prayer focused on an aspect of Catholic Social Teaching/Human Rights; access to work, immigration, access to housing, etc.
Students who took a Rice Bowl with them also put money aside. The Rice Bowls are being returned now and the funds collected will be split between the La Salle Easter Food Drive (LGU) and CRS.
The video below was done by Molly Mahon. It shares the reflection of some of the students on this past Lent and the CRS program. La Salle was one of 40 Universities throughout the country that were highlighted by CRS. As Lent ends we invite you to share in these reflections.
Thank you to all that helped make the 2014 Service Trips Auction a huge success. The proceeds will help make the experiences of students on future trips even more special!
