Director's Message


Advent is here … the time to prepare for the coming of the Messiah!

Here at the Salesian Center, it’s also time to prepare for the end of one semester and the beginning of another, as we continue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of DeSales University. 

For that celebration, we are sponsoring two special happenings:  a star-studded Heritage Week (January 24-28) and a first ever Salesian MOOC (Feb 10 – Mar 23). 

Whether extraordinary or ordinary, our events would not take place except for the generosity of our benefactors.  In this month of gift-giving, we give you our thanks and our promise to put your donations to very good use. 

And on this “giving Tuesday” (or any day!), we invite you to continue to support our work of education at the intersection of faith and culture.

Narrated by Rev. Alexander Pocetto, OSFS, Senior Salesian Scholar 



"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."

- Pope John Paul II
