Dear Friends,

​As spring-like weather slowly moves into our area we begin to think of spring activities ... baseball, landscaping, picnics, and of course, graduations. Here at the Salesian Center we're closing out our academic year with a few great calendar events.

Our Ryan Leadership Institute seniors will be completing their final B.E.S.T. workshop and our juniors will be heading off on their co-missioning retreat, and our Faith & Reason Honors Program will highlight its seniors during the Honors Colloquium in a few weeks.

The last movie of the semester will air in our Reel to Real series, which is free and open to the public, or you can register to attend the final quarterly breakfast event in Forum for Ethics in the Workplace series.

Plenty of work still to be done! As always, we thank you for your continued support of our work and invite you to attend any of our public events and to keep up-to-date by following us on FacebookTwitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, or sign up for our E-newsletter.

​In the meantime, enjoy the spring breeze and God bless. 

Lore Anna McFadden, PMP
Director of Programs

"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."
