Franciscan Colored Seal
A Message From Father Dave

Coming Home to Franciscan: Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR, on Fall 2020

President Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, talks courageous walking by faith and living in charity and patience, and lots of practical matters such as de-densifying classrooms, adding Masses, switching around athletic seasons, testing for COVID locally, eating and meeting outdoors, living household life, and disinfecting. Even—or perhaps especially—in the time of COVID-19, his hope for fall 2020 at Franciscan University of Steubenville is the same as for any semester: that everyone will thrive through dynamic educational experiences, deepening relationships with Jesus Christ, and caring Christian community. Amen? Amen!

P.S. Don’t miss Father Dave’s mask-wearing challenge!

P.P.S. Father Dave says you can enjoy Franciscan’s Night of Hope here.
