Happy Birthday Fr. Rudy!
It was a wet and cold morning, but by midday, the University Ministry living room was the place to be as we surprised Fr. Rudy Vela, S.M. our Vice President for Mission and Identity with a celebration in honor of his birthday. Over 50 members of the University faculty, staff, administration, board members and Marianists were present to surprise Fr. Rudy.
A Mariachi group provided the music for the lively gathering and with enough food to feed everyone and more. After everyone had their share of the meal, the candles were blown and the birthday cake was cut.
