10th Annual Bellarmine Memorial Mass Held March 22nd

Posted: April 29, 2018

The 10th Annual Bellarmine Memorial Mass, sponsored by the Dads of Grads, was held on Thursday night, March 22nd. The Mass was in held in the Leontyne Chapel, celebrated by Fr. Bob Shinney, with concelebrants Fr. Jerry Wade, Fr. Dick Cobb, and Fr. Ed Harris. During the Mass, Fr. Shinney gave a short homily, which was followed by a reflection by Bill Colluci, Director of Planned Giving. After the Mass, everyone was invited to Licardo to share remembrances over coffee and cookies.

Next year, the Memorial Mass will be held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 7 PM. With Easter less than two weeks after that (April 21, 2019), this will be a perfect time to pause and remember our loved ones.

The Memorial Mass was started in 2009 by the Dads of Grads to serve the Bellarmine community’s desire to honor family members and friends who have passed away. Many families attend the Mass, typically held before Easter, and use this as an opportunity to come together, honor loved ones, and afterwards take a few moments to share some memories over coffee & cookies. The Mass is open to current parents, students, faculty, alums, and all families and friends.
