“As we enter into the holiday season, we are always met with a sense of change,” said Cristian Murphy ’14, director of Campus Ministry. “This year, we especially feel this sense of change as we are all still adjusting to the changes within our lives due to the pandemic.
“In the midst of these adjustments, one of the best ways to stay grounded and focused is to offer help to others,” he continued. “This experience of community and fellowship will always make us whole in ways beyond words.”
