October 13, 2017 Insider: Autumn Blessings

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
We are so thankful that family members of Carroll professors Al Murray and John Downs were able to join us last week for the dedication and blessing of two new apartment buildings on campus: St. Alfred the Great and St. John Vianney Apartments, named in honor of Professors Murray and Downs.
Learn more about the extraordinary generosity that made the apartments possible.
A highlight of Homecoming weekend was the opportunity for friends, family and alumni to experience Carroll’s new All Saints Chapel, including celebrating Sunday Mass together (photo below.)
The formal dedication of the All Saints Chapel will take place November 1st, the Solemnity of All Saints. Campus Ministry has designed the day to include several opportunities for the Carroll community to be part of this special moment in Carroll’s history, including Masses at 12 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., as well as chapel tours. Learn more here.
KTVH-TV sat down with Fr. Marc Lenneman the Friday of Homecoming to learn more about the chapel in this segment:

She drove straight from Nationals to Carroll, arriving at 2 a.m. on the first day of classes! According to Wikipedia, equestrian vaulting is most often described as gymnastics and dance on horseback. Vaulting has a history as an equestrian act at circuses, but its origins stretch back at least 2,000 years. Congratulations Bonnie! Read the announcement here.
