In view of the approaching bicentennial founding of St. Louis University in 1818 new awards were established at a recent university gala. Eighteen graduating seniors from across the university were chosen for academic excellence and leadership. Each of these students chose a professor who was of important assistance to them during undergraduate years. Richard Joubert, one of the eighteen seniors, chose Fr. Wayne Hellmann, OFM Conv., for the Outstanding Mentor Award. Congratulations to Richard and Fr. Wayne!
“Remember when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received – only what you have given.”
-St. Francis of Assisi
Since the time of St. Francis and his first followers, our ministries, our ability to serve those in need, the education of new Friars, the care of our senior men all are possible with the partnership of our benefactors. Your generosity makes these stories possible.
