Throughout the year, we celebrate certain days to help us remember the past and relive it each year in a new manner:

Friday, May 23
Baccalaureate at Graduation
Alumni Gymnasium, 3 p.m.
The Reverend Doctor James A. Forbes Jr., senior minister of the Riverside Church in New York City, will preach the Baccalaureate sermon for the Class of 2003. Newsweek magazine has called Forbes, a North Carolina native, one of the twelve "most effective preachers" in the English-speaking world.

Father John Ruffo, Franciscan Friar and campus minister for Elon's Catholic Campus Ministry, celebrated the annual Franciscan tradition of the Blessing of Animals at College Chapel Oct. 3. About a dozen students, faculty and staff brought their pets, or pictures of them, to the service to be blessed. St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals.

Winter Feast is a great way to chase away the cold blast of winter! Elon's community is invited to join with area churches for a potluck supper. Students enjoy a home-cooked meal along with Elon faculty, staff, families and church members. Join us in January 2004 in McKinnon Hall, Moseley Center.
