SHC Campus Update
Come watch your favorite professors eat the hottest pepper on earth! Last year we introduced the scorching ghost pepper. This year the scorpion pepper, followed by the very newest and hottest pepper (10 times hotter!).
Will Dr. J be the one? Or are you counting on Dr. Dunbar to save her? Will Dr. Dorton cry in pain? Vote for your favorite OR your least favorite professor.
Vote in the cafeteria at lunch through Thursday.
Tonight at 7pm in the Gautrelet Room, join the Knights of Columbus for Episode 2 of Fr. Barron's outstanding video series, "Catholicism." All members of both the College and Mobile communities are welcome.
In this episode, Fr. Barron highlights the Beatitudes, the path of non-violence and lessons of forgiveness, care for the poor and our relationship with God as presented in the parables. Jesus’ teachings are illuminated during Fr. Barron’s pilgrimages to Poland, Germany, Spain and New York City. Commentaries at these sites also show how the Catholic Church is a living culture, which gives witness to the inviolable dignity of the human person.
Read the news story about the full video series on the SHC website.
