Saint Vincent College Campus Ministry hosted a blessing for the school’s fall athletes on Thursday, Sept. 6 in the Robert S. Carey Student Center gymnasium. Assistant Campus Minister Fr. Canice McMullen, O.F.M., discussed the importance of mind, body and soul in the college experience, noting that St. Paul compared himself to an athlete running a race. He blessed and distributed prayer cards of St. Sebastian, patron saint of athletes.
In addition, Deacon Michael Taberero, Diocese of Metuchen, offered a reading and a brief reflection alongside Seminarian Michael Faix, Diocese of Pittsburgh, who assisted with the blessing and distribution of prayer cards. The blessing was organized by Sue Hozak, associate athletic director, and Bridget DiVittis, assistant director of Campus Ministry, as part of the Sports and Spirituality Program, a joint venture of the Athletic Department and Campus Ministry.
