2019-20 University Theme:
``I Am the Bread of Life``.

John 6:35

“This year, we focus on Jesus as the “Bread of Life” (cf. John 6:35). He gives this great gift of himself as food for our journey, and what a blessed food it is! Strength, healing, hope, conversion, consolation—Jesus provides every grace we need to become who he created us to be in the Eucharist.  So, instead of seeking to fill ourselves with crusts that can never satisfy, let us receive Jesus in the Eucharist frequently and come before him gratefully in Eucharistic adoration. If we do this as a community, it’s going to be an amazing year!” —From the Welcome Letter by our president, Father Dave Pivonka, TOR ’89. Read the whole letter.
