Blessing Ceremony of Student Chaplains

This Wednesday, August 22, Manor College’s new student chaplains were officially recognized in a blessing ceremony at Manor College Chapel. Thomas Verni, Campus Ministry Coordinator, led the welcoming statements, while Reverend John Ciurpita, Manor College Chaplain, blessed the students. Dean of Students and Vice President of Student Affairs, Allison Mootz, gave the students their pins. The three new student chaplains are Da’Vondra Purnell, Seamus Fleming, and Jonathan Nemo.

The Student Chaplaincy Program is new to Manor through the Campus Ministry, and involves providing spiritual support for fellow students through participation in various ministry events and initiatives.

Manor College congratulates these students on their new role as spiritual leaders!
