As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
To mark the opening of the academic year, Catholic colleges and universities celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit. This longstanding tradition dates back to 16th century Europe and allows the entire College community to come together and celebrate Emmanuel's mission and Catholic identity.
Emmanuel College's Mass of the Holy Spirit is celebrated in conjunction with Academic Convocation as the official start to the academic year. The Mass serves as a means of invoking the Holy Spirit for guidance and wisdom throughout the comings months.
