Evening of Light with the Dominicans of the St. Joseph Province
This faith-filled evening began with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Fr. James Brent O.P. of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph preached on our need to ask for and receive the healing of the Lord; he then offered sacramental blessings with the oil of St. Joseph from the St. Joseph Oratory in Canada. He was joined by Fr. Benedict Croell O.P. who gave individual benedictions with the Blessed Sacrament, while our FOCUS missionaries prayed with individual students for their needs. Our University of Pittsburgh FOCUS team leader Matt Keeny, along with students Tyler Bensen, Kurt Kessler, and John Easter, lead chants and hymns throughout the evening while Oratorians Fr. Joshua Kibler, C.O. and Fr. Stephen Lowery, C.O. heard confessions. The evening concluded with the celebration of Mass.
