2017 Lalanne end of summer Mass and celebration

Lalanne teachers from Cohorts 18 & 19 gathered July 29, 2017 at UD's Chapel of the Immaculate Conception for a Mass to mark the end of their summer at the University of Dayton. Graduating teachers from Cohort 18 were joined by their family members to mark this special occasion.

The service included vocal and instrumental music, scripture readings and a blessing of the graduating teachers (see image above).

At the dinner and celebration that followed, remarks were offered by Susan Ferguson (director, UD Center for Catholic Education) and Dr. Kevin Kelly (dean, UD School of Education and Health Sciences). Jacinta Mergler (director, Lalanne Program), shared reflections about each of the graduating teachers.
