Guest Quotes:

“The idea of God’s providence and the idea of providence affecting everything we do is something that I’ve really come to appreciate, maybe, especially now that I’m older.”

“All these little things happen that maybe at the time you don’t really fully understand but then you kind of look back and you go, ‘Wow, that was all part of a path that I’m on now.’  So, certainly the idea of divine providence is a huge part of (Providence College).”

“You get this general sense of community and that there’s something bigger than yourself going on here.”

“There is that overarching sense of faith and community that comes with being a Catholic institution.”

“(the Dominican friars)… have become such a huge part of my life… The relationships that I’ve been able to build with the Dominican friars, that’s something that I’m really grateful for… It certainly made my life more rich.”

“I’ve always… been drawn to the St. Francis, ‘Preach the gospel at all times, use words when necessary’.”
