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.
