Welcome back to a new academic
It is a St. John’s University tradition to start each year by
coming together in prayer at our Opening School Mass
of the Holy Spirit.
This semester, the Mass of the Holy Spirit will take place
on Thursday, September 19, at 12:15
p.m. in St. Thomas More Church. Rev. Joseph L.
Levesque, C.M., Interim President, will celebrate this
As always, we will commission and bless our student campus
leaders during Mass. This is an important opportunity to pray with
and support our students as they begin their service to the
University. I ask that you to make every effort to attend!
Please know that all of us in the Office of
University Mission and Campus Ministry will be
praying for you and the work you will do as the year begins.
Rev. Gerard H. Luttenberger, C.M.
Executive Vice President for Mission
