100 YEARS OF CATHOLIC CAMPUS MINISTRY

This past Saturday, Our Lady of Wisdom hosted a Centennial Gala to celebrate 100 years of Catholic campus ministry at Texas State University. While the century has brought about various changes in name, location, and more, one thing about Our Lady of Wisdom has remained consistent: the Catholic faith.

Our speakers included Msgr. Bill Brooks, who served Our Lady of Wisdom throughout the 1980s, Fr. Brian Eilers, Wisdom’s former director, and SPO Mission Director and Texas State graduate Colleen Hadsall, who as a student was the first to initiate the start of SPO in Texas.

In addition to our guest speakers, we had staff and student representatives from SPO, FOCUS, Wisdom and more sitting at every table to share with guests the many great things the Lord has been able to do with their support for the Catholic students at Texas State. The event was a great tribute to the many men and women who have made tremendous sacrifices to make Our Lady of Wisdom what it is today, and to the incredible generosity of the Lord in providing a way for it all to happen.
