A couple weeks ago Sal and I met with a couple NMSU faculty members in what turned out to be a great brainstorming session about what we could do to further support the folks over at the university. From the conversation a couple of ideas surfaced: the first, to offer a mass in which faculty and staff would be recognized, the second, a monthly mass, followed by lunch and a chat.
We decided to call the service the Crimson Mass, which will be held on Sunday, September 11 at 7:30pm. We're inviting all NMSU and DACC faculty and staff to attend. We would like to both recognize and offer a blessing for the new academic semester. We'd also like to propose a brainstorming lunch, following the Friday 12:10pm mass on September 16. Please bring your ideas of how we can better serve and minister to the university community.
