We will hold two massed on Orientation Weekend in order to accommodate the Freshmen's orientation schedule. We will hold a special 11am mass followed by lunch for all new students (we have confirmed with the University that Freshmen may come to this and it will not conflict with their orientation). We will also have our regular 5:30pm mass followed by a light reception that evening for all our Upperclassmen and anyone who was not able to attend the morning Mass. Upperclassmen are invited to join the Campus Ministry in attending the Eagle Gathering on Campus later that evening to further welcome the new students to campus. After Eagle Gathering everyone will walk over to McDonalds for some fellowship time.
