A Letter from the Evans Family
December 6, 2018
Last night’s Cardinal Feast was such a wonderful experience. My family and I were delighted to join so many of you as we served our students together. Over 100 employees volunteered their time to take part in this great event, which is a true testament to our community’s commitment to our Mission.
The international fusion menu was well-received, and it was a joy to see 932 members of our diverse student body experiencing and celebrating our many cultures. The family-style meal encouraged conversation among the students and volunteers and it was nice to see the smiling faces accompanying lively conversations. Our entire family enjoyed the opportunity to talk with our students. Our sons, Walter and Leland especially enjoyed helping where they could.
We are grateful to the 35 faculty and staff members who cheerfully joined Lisa and me on Tuesday afternoon to roll 1,200 sets of silverware. A very special thank you to Cindy Adair and her Sodexo team for their work to meet our requests in the preparation and coordination of the event.
We hope that you all enjoyed the experience as much as we did. Our community truly is One Word.
Praised be the Incarnate Word!
The Evans Family

All are welcome.
