Monday Morning Update

December 11, 2017


BIG DIG: The biggest water main break in recent Easton history occurred on campus last week. Affecting many but not all of our buildings, the break caused disruption, canceled classes and sent employees home on Tuesday. Click here to see photos.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT & HOPE: Chapel Choir treated a packed Chapel of Mary to a service of scripture and song on Friday, December 1. After the service, many gathered on the quad for the lighting of the Christmas tree. See our Snapshot.

SEASONAL CELEBRATIONS: Sample a flavor of the many seasonal celebrations—concerts, events, decorations, Santa, and gift wrapping--held recently! See our Christmas Snapshot!

CHRISTMAS EVE: On Sunday, December 24, Christmas Eve Mass will be celebrated in the Chapel of Mary at 5:00 p.m. with Rev. John Denning, C.S.C. presiding. To ensure a seat, come early.

CARE PACKAGES: W. B. Mason will be offering students, who begin exams on Thursday, care packages to help them through the final days of the semester. Their truck will be in the Duffy lot Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and their reps will be handing out the packages.

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Alerted to our need for drinking water on Tuesday, our friends at W.B. Mason delivered 170 cases to campus within 30 minutes and helped us in distributing it to affected residence halls. See a hi-res photo here.
