Campus Candids

The Canisius University community gathered in the Montante Cultural Center on Wednesday, September 13 to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit. The long-held tradition marks the start of the academic year, and reminds us that we are united in the pursuit of truth, value and the myriad of cultures that make us a diverse community of higher learning.

University Chaplain Rev. Fred Betti, SJ, presided over the Mass of the Holy Spirit, along with concelebrants Rev. Daniel Jamros, SJ; Rev. Patrick Lynch, SJ; Rev. Joseph McShane, SJ; Rev. Thomas Slon, SJ; and Rev. Michael Tunney, SJ. Deacon Gary Andelora also assisted with the Mass.

Demonstrating that Canisius University is Where Leaders are Made is this group of pre-med and pre-health students who recently traveled to Olean, NY to volunteer with Remote Area Medical (RAM).

During their 3-day stay, students provided medical, dental and vision healthcare services to 300+ patients.

Rosh Hashanah

Tonight marks the start of Rosh Hashanah. To those in the campus community who celebrate, Canisius University wishes you a happy, sweet and healthy new year.

Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset this evening and ends at nightfall on Sunday, September 17. The terms means “head of the year” and marks the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days and a time to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the new one ahead.

Several customs traditionally accompany the celebration of Rosh Hashanah. They include the blowing and listening to “shofar” (an ancient instrument made from a ram’s horn), attending synagogue services and reciting special prayers of “teshuva” (repentance), and enjoying festive meals with many sweets.

If you were to greet someone during Rosh Hashanah, you might say “Shana Tova” (Good Year), “Chag Sameach” (Happy Holiday) or Happy Rosh Hashanah.
