Dear Friends,

Here at the Salesian Center we're gearing up for an exciting 2018.  We launched the year with our annual Heritage Week celebrations (Jan. 21-25) with some brilliant speakers and topics. We will begin our FREE online non-credit course for Lent and we will welcome a new class to their first seminar in the Faith & Reason Honors Program .

Stay tuned for some exciting additional events planned for spring 2018!

As always, we invite you to keep up-to-date by following us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, or sign up for our E-newsletter. We thank and we invite you to join us for our activities and to support us in our work.

In the meantime, stay warm and God bless.
