All University of Portland community members are invited to celebrate the feast day of Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C., founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, on Wednesday, January 20, at 5 p.m., in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. Karen Eifler, co-director of the Garaventa Center, will be honored as a recipient of the 2015 Spirit of Holy Cross Award, the highest honor bestowed by the Congregation upon its lay collaborators.
The award is given annually to lay collaborators of the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers, and recognizes lay collaborators who devotedly work to make Blessed Basil Moreau’s vision and mission to “make God known, loved, and served” a reality at the Congregation’s education, parish and mission apostolates. Honorees receive a proclamation of gratitude signed by Provincial Superior Fr. Tom O’Hara on behalf of the entire U.S. Province.
