The Spring 2013 semester concluded with Closing Convocation on campus. Msgr. Fucinaro, assisted by Fr. Brown, Fr. Thomas Esposito, and Fr. Sean Kilcawley, celebrated the closing mass in the Aula Magna. Dr. Hatlie and Msgr. Fucinaro gave the Convocation addresses bringing the semester to a close. In his speech, Dr. Hatlie names this class the "Crusher Class" because of the beautiful intensity with which they sought to make the most of every moment of their semester. Both speakers urged the students to never forget their time in Rome and to take a moment to reflect on the experiences they had here this past semester. The outstanding Mensa staff prepared a five course dinner for the students - a feast which included a whole swordfish and was accompanied by a volcano-shaped dessert (complete with smoke!), and an incredible fireworks display. The night was brought to a close with the presentation of the Student Awards, the Spring 2013 Class Superlatives, and a slideshow. What a beautiful end to a fantastic and unforgettable semester!
