On May 11, 2012, we invited donors who supported the Science Initiative to campus to take a look at the fruit of their generosity. Here's a few images from the event.
Gracious and Loving God
Today we gather with awe and wonder in this sacred space--
The Benedictine Commons
Our hearts are over-flowing with gratitude
for the generosity, vision and courage
of our many donors who have made this
Science Initiative come to reality.
We stop to ponder and celebrate
the quiet miracles that have taken place
In the construction of this New Initiative
We creatively imagine the new discoveries, insights
and challenges that will burst forth within these sacred walls,
as our students ponder the mysteries yet to be discovered
in their pursuit of wisdom and knowledge.
Source of Wisdom and Guidance,
Keep alive in all who have made possible this new space
and all who will use it
our Benedictine Tradition and Values
as our students prepare to touch and renew the world.
Wellspring of Hope--
continue to bless all who have shared their wisdom,
talents, and generous financial gifts to bring to fruition
another part of the dream of Mother Scholastica and the Benedictine Sisters.
