Sesquicentennial Mass

Hundreds of people from the campus and Bay Area community attended the Sesquicentennial Mass and reception for the official kickoff of the Year of the Gael. Bishop Emeritus John S. Cummins presided and spoke of the importance of SMC to the diocese of Oakland. Father Xavier Lavagetto, of St. Dominic's Catholic Church in San Francisco, delivered a homily that evoked the sweeping history of SMC, and Brother Ronald delivered a moving tribute to the College's commitment to serving the poor and immmigrants.
