Cornell Catholic Listserve
Food, Flowers, Mass & More
You made it! In celebration of the end of the semester, we've got some tasty food at our soup supper tonight (and cake for Jeremiah, as this will be his
final Wednesday Supper
at Cornell!), and tons of snacks to accompany any studying you might do in the Redlin Room (ATH G22). We've got space for you to quiet down and focus. (And coffee!) We hope you have a very safe Slope Day- for those of you celebrating Thursday in the Fourth Week of Easter Season, we will still hold 12:20pm mass tomorrow, and our offices will close at 1pm. Please note that tomorrow, the all doors to ATH will be locked, except for the front doors nearest the chapel.
