The Gentlemen’s Dorm

| Tuesday, April 1, 2014

I would like to take this opportunity to again say thank you to the men of St. Edward’s Hall. No matter how bad my morning starts off, whether I am running late or have spilled coffee all over myself, it gets better when I see the smiling faces of the students and hear them say, “Good morning, Maem.”

They always treat me with respect, as I do to them, and they help me get through my day. I care for each of the students as if he were my own son. They are true gentlemen and have been since I started here.

Beyond the wonderful student residents of St. Ed’s, another man I would like to give thanks to is Fr. Ralph Haag. He is truly a blessing in my life and my family’s life. Did I mention he is one of the best rectors on campus?

While I have thanked you before, I would like to thank you, gentlemen of St. Ed’s and Fr. Ralph, for letting me be able to say that I enjoy waking up each day to go to work. Thank you for all you do for me and for giving me the strength to not to give up.
God bless you.
