Jennifer Washney, Program Manager for Mission Delivery, also states that “We need volunteers who can drive locally in Monroe County, as well. Most rides are provided during the week during the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and the schedule for drivers is flexible. If you like to drive and you have a few hours each week to help, we need you!

DeSales University Celebrates 50th Anniversary

DeSales University is celebrating its 50th anniversary and will be holding a series of special events over the next year to commemorate the milestone. The festivities will feature speakers (including Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York and Fox News’ Michelle Malkin), participation from graduates of previous classes, educational lectures and more.

“Our year-long 50th anniversary celebration will provide the local community and current students with an understanding of DeSales’ past and allow us to share our vision for the future of higher education,” said DeSales University President Father Bernard F. O’Connor, OSFS.

DeSales University traces its history to 1961, when Bishop Joseph McShea sought to fill the void of a Catholic college in the Lehigh Valley in the new Diocese of Allentown. In 1965, at the request of the Bishop, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales established a liberal arts college (originally Allentown College of St. Francis de Sales) to serve this need. It joined five other colleges and universities of distinction.

Today, DeSales has more than 3,100 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and an adult bachelor’s degree program (ACCESS). The university has provided the highest level of education to thousands before them, influenced generations of families and positively impacted surrounding communities.

“The 50th anniversary events will honor past and current students and serve as a celebration of the proud history and tradition that we have built at DeSales over the past half a century,” said Father O’Connor.

Some of the events planned for the year-long anniversary include:

September 2: the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture will host a symposium concerning Ex Corde Ecclesiae (John Paul II’s vision for Catholic universities) on its 25th anniversary.

September 10: A statue, entitled Jesus the Teacher, will be dedicated to honor the bishops, clergy and people of the Diocese of Allentown. Speakers will include Father O’Connor, Ben Marcune (Bethlehem-based nationally acclaimed sculptor and painter) and the Most Reverend John O. Barres, D.D., bishop of Allentown.

September 25-26: Homecoming weekend,where academic departments will have cocktail receptions and retired faculty/staff will attend.

November 11: The Rev. Thomas Furphy Lecture Series, featuring Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.

January 24-28, 2016: A special Heritage Week celebration will be hosted by the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture. Events include:

  • Sunday, January 24: Mass of Saint Francis de Sales – celebrant, Bishop Barres
  • Monday, January 25: Forum on Biomedical Ethics – CEO’s from local hospital networks
  • Tuesday, January 26: Seminar on Law & Society – Prof. Robert P. George J.D., PhD of Philosophy, Princeton University
  • Wednesday, January 27: Town Hall on Social Communications – Rev. Thomas Rosica, CEO of Salt & Light Media and liaison at the Vatican Press Office.
  • Thursday, January 28: R. Wayne Kraft Memorial Lecture – Fr. Antonio Spadaro, S. J., Gregorian University, Rome, editor of Civilta Cattolica and papal interviewer

April 6, 2016: The Marcon Lecturer is Michelle Malkin, Fox News journalist, nationally syndicated columnist and Journalism Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.

May 21, 2016: Commencement will feature a parade of flags carried by alumni for each of the 50 years. Joseph Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of Louisville, Ky., a Lehigh Valley native and President of the American Bishop’s Conference will receive an honorary degree and offer the address at the graduation ceremony. Archbishop Kurtz is also a former member of the Board of Trustees at DeSales.

Hike to the Top

On Saturday, September 12, join Environmental Educator Brittney Coleman at 10 am for a discovery hike to the top of the unnamed ridge across the road from the EE Center building.  These seldom used trails offer opportunities to see undisturbed wildlife, a huge glacial erratic boulder and do some off-trail exploring in search of a scenic vista at the top. The hike is not strenuous, but it is steep in spots, so we’ll take it easy. Wear proper hiking shoes or boots, and bring water and a snack. Cost: $5/non-members, $3/children under 12.  EE Center members free.

To pre-register, please call the Center at (570) 629-3061, Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and most Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information on other programs we offer, please visit our website at www.mcconservation.org.

Annual Savannah's Angels Benefit Concert

On Saturday, September 26, 2015 there will be a benefit concert held for 8 year old Savannah Phillips. Savannah has a rare genetic disease known as Sandhoff Disease. Sandhoff Disease is a genetic disorder that progressively destroys nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Her family’s health insurance recently denied Savannah the medication known as Zavesca.  Without the help from the insurance company, the medication alone will cost $48,000. While the medication is not a cure, it has been known to show improvement in balance, coordination and cognitive ability in other children. Sadly, many children with Sandhoff Disease don’t make it out of adolescence and Zavesca may be Savannah’s only hope. Please help the Phillips family in reaching their $48,000 goal to help prolong young Savannah’s life. For more on Savannah's story follow the link below!

Chef Anne Burrell

Easton Hospital welcomes celebrity chef Anne Burrell to the State Theatre as part of the 5th annual Girls’ Night Out on October 28th.

 

Girls’ Night Out is a health fair and women’s exposition with a variety of shopping vendors. Over the last few years, the event has had an average attendance of 700 women. This year, in honor of Easton Hospital’s 125th Anniversary, the event has cooked up a new twist.

 

“The City of Easton has become the culinary epicenter of the Lehigh Valley,” says event organizer Janine Santee, community outreach coordinator at Easton Hospital. “We’ve leveraged that reputation by bringing in a chef of Anne Burrell’s caliber and character. She should feel right at home in Easton.”

 

Ms. Burrell will present on the Main Stage at the State Theatre at 7 p.m. Her show includes a question and answer portion and a cooking demo. She will be signing books after the show as well. Tickets will go on sale at the State Theatre box office for $26 on August 28th.

 

The core elements from Girls’ Night Out will remain intact despite the expansion of the event. In the Easton Hospital Gallery and Acopian Room at the State Theatre, beginning at 5 p.m., will be a free evening of physician interactions, wellness information, culinary arts and shopping from over 60 local vendors.

 

“We should probably change the name to Foodies’ Night Out,” Santee says. “There will be something there for everyone, not just the girls.”

 

There will be an emphasis on vendors from the soon-to-open Easton Public Market. The downtown space, once occupied by the Weller Center, will be a regional destination, creating a downtown food district when partnered with the robust Easton Farmers’ Market. The new public market will feature a butcher, seafood counter, demonstration kitchen and several ready-to-eat vendors.

 

“We see this event as an opportunity to introduce and showcase the vendors who will be permanently based at the Easton Public Market to a crowd that cares about cooking, food preparation and local ingredients,” says Megan McBride, manager of the Easton Farmers’ Market.

 

“Easton Hospital is a big supporter of the downtown programming with its sponsorships of the State Theatre, Downtown Gift Card and Easton Farmers’ Market,” says John Zidansek. “So it was a natural fit to hold our event at the State, bring in Anne Burrell and work with our market partners. We are excited about the continued revitalization of downtown with the new Easton Public Market. It is going to be a fun night for both men and women.”

 

The Girls’ Night Out event is free and open to the public. It will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

 

For information on sponsorships, program advertising and vendor registration, contact Janine Santee at 610-250-4952. For tickets to Anne Burrell, contact the State Theatre box office at (610) 252-3132 or visit www.statetheatre.org. Fees apply. This is not a State Theatre Production.
