All of the “pilgrims.” There were forty-three faculty, staff, and students representing eleven Dominican institutions.
On Memorial Day, I, along with A.J. LaPoint, assistant director of campus ministry, and two students, Stephanie Rivera and Ilci Valarde, flew to Fanjeaux, France to study medieval France, Saint Dominic de Guzman, and the Dominican order. Upon arrival we met the other members of our pilgrimage group, thirty-nine faculty, staff, and students from ten other Dominican institutions. Over the next two and a half weeks we discussed the Dominican charism and how it forms the shared foundation of the missions of Dominican colleges and universities.
