SMC to host French-themed dinner celebrating Moreau

first_imgSaint Mary’s will host a French-themed dinner Wednesday to honor Fr. Basil Moreau, the founding father of the Congregation of Holy Cross. The sisters of the Holy Cross founded Saint Mary’s in 1844.Regina Wilson, director of Campus Ministry, said Moreau is important because he emerged at a time in French society when there was a lot of turmoil and a breakdown of French society structures.“[Moreau] wanted to provide a way for faithful people to address the issues of their time and be educated and be able to address those as people of faith,” Wilson said. “I think that is important because it sounds like the time that we’re in. There’s a lot of challenge to the ways that people have known our life as people in the United States, and some of those ways are being broken down and challenged.”Moreau was born shortly after the French Revolution in 1799, and Wilson said he experienced the demise of education and the diminishment of faith in the public education system through his experiences in the seminary and living post-French Revolution.“He wanted to gather people around him to share in the work he wanted to do,” she said. “His idea was to gather women and men together to do the work of educating and sharing the faith. Eventually the sisters and brothers had to have separate constitutions, but his original vision was for shared ministry and shared life together. That was what eventually became the family of Holy Cross.”She said Moreau’s vision for what it means to live a Christian life is unique and life-giving.“[His vision] has helped a lot of people go out into the world and live with meaning and to establish these great institutions we are a part of — hospitals, grade schools, nursing homes — and especially educational institutions,” Wilson said.Wilson said she attended a Holy Cross college but never heard of Moreau or talked about him until later in her career. She said the importance of Moreau emerged with his beatification in 2007.“It’s really exciting to be in this time because everyone is discovering it together. … All people of Holy Cross can discover something about their heritage together and in a way dialogue and share what it means to them and shape the legacy of that for the future,” Wilson said.A Mass was held Sunday in the Holy Spirit Chapel in Le Mans Hall, Wilson said.“His feast day is on Wednesday, and so for a feast to be transferred to a Sunday, because usually Sunday takes precedent, we have to have permission from the bishop of the Archdiocese,” she said.Sodexo will provide the French-themed meal Wednesday. The Saint Mary’s community, including off-campus students, faculty and staff can celebrate Moreau together from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Noble Family Dining Hall.Tags: Basil Moreau, blessed basil moreaulast_img read more

Bryson DeChambeau says camera operator jeopardized his ‘brand’

first_imgA shot off the pace at the start of Day 3, Wolff posted six birdies and two bogeys on the front nine to make the turn in 32. Two tied at 17-under. @matthew_wolff5 just eagled the par-5 14th. #QuickHits pic.twitter.com/Awa6CW01Hh— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 4, 2020After another bogey at the 10th, Wolff caught fire with two birdies and an eagle before another gain at the 17th moved him to 19 under overall, ahead of Ryan Armour (67) and Bryson DeChambeau (67). Troy Merritt (67), Mark Hubbard (69), Seamus Power and Chris Kirk (70) are five strokes behind Wolff heading into the final round. Mesmerizing.The swing of 54-hole @RocketClassic leader, @matthew_wolff5 . pic.twitter.com/nrnQab1N9g— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 4, 2020Kirk shared a one-shot lead with 2012 U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson following Friday’s second round, but the former saw his advantage evaporate. Simpson is one stroke further back in a tie for eighth after signing for a 1-under-par 71 — his first round in the 70s this week. DeChambeau’s round included him confronting a camera operator after making bogey on No. 7. DeChambeau said the operator kept the camera on him for too long while DeChambeau reacted angrily to a poor bunker shot on that hole. Bryson running a little hot. Caught up with him on 7 where he took a Sergio slash at the sand after splashing out of a greenside bunker, muttered an expletive after missing the par save and spent 60 seconds in a…testy discussion with a cameraman on his way to 8 tee. pic.twitter.com/ENjQt1U689— Will Gray (@WillGrayGC) July 4, 2020The American said after his round that players should not be shown in a negative light and thus have their “brand” jeopardized.From Golf Channel :”As much as we’re out here performing, I think it’s necessary that we have our times of privacy as well when things aren’t going our way. I mean, we’re in the spotlight, but if somebody else is in the spotlight they wouldn’t want that either,” DeChambeau said. “I feel like when you’re videoing someone and you catch Tiger (Woods) at a bad time, you show him accidentally doing something, or someone else, they’re just frustrated because they really care about the game. It could really hurt them if they catch you at a potentially vulnerable time.”We don’t mean anything by it, we just care a lot about the game. For that to damage our brand like that, that’s not cool in the way we act because if you actually meet me in person, I’m not too bad of a dude, I don’t think.”Sporting News’ Tom Gatto contributed to this report. Matthew Wolff carded a second successive 8-under-par 64 to move to the top of the leaderboard after the third round at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Wolff surged to a three-stroke lead through 54 holes thanks to another low round at Detroit Golf Club in Michigan on Saturday. The 21-year-old is eyeing his second PGA Tour title after winning last year’s 3M Open. last_img read more
