All you need is love…We all know a great love story has to have at least one relatable or engaging character. This is the character who pulls us into the story and makes us care about how things turn out for everyone in the end. Christians are called to live their faith as a love story with God as the main character who wants a relationship with us (the other characters in the story); a Read more…

Last week I attended the opening night of the M² Production, “War of the Worlds”. OLMC and Marcellin College have worked together over the years to celebrate The Arts through our annual production and it was with relief and anticipation that we once again welcomed students, staff and families to the OLMC Mercedes Hogan Theatre to enjoy live performances. As we began planning for “War of the Worlds”, we did so with an understanding that COVID-19 could Read more…

As College Captain, I have a position that affords me an opportunity to use my voice and my actions to set an example for my peers, and to help be a positive influence for change.
