Fr. Francis Building Bless 2014

Fr. Francis Amodio, O.Carm., blesses College Court 5 at Mount Saint Mary College.

Fr. Francis Amodio, O.Carm., chaplain and director of Mount Saint Mary College’s campus ministry, blessed the Mount’s residence halls on Sunday, August 24.

Fr. Amodio invited students to pray at the Dominican Center, Sakac Hall, Guzman Hall, and the College Courts for a safe and happy semester for them and 2,500 new and returning classmates.

According to Fr. Amodio, people, occasions, and objects can be blessed. A prayer is said during the event, which “explains God’s way and how God’s presence is connected” to the blessing.

The Mount’s campus ministry helps to build a community of faith through prayer, worship and service. A variety of activities are offered, including prayer experiences, retreats, and service programs.
