President Garvey Urges Students to 'Do All to the Glory of God'

University President John Garvey spoke at the conclusion of the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit encouraging students in the words of St. Paul, to "do all to the glory of God.”

“The appetite for truth and beauty that craves feeding was given to us by God and God makes no appetite in vain,” Garvey said. “So satisfying our natural appetites can be a way of advancing toward God. … The key is to keep in mind what we do these things for," he said.

“I am proud of the work our faculty and students do in the pursuit of truth and beauty,” Garvey said. “And it is wonderful to see the effects our efforts have beyond the bounds of our campus. Our work nourishes the Church and our country, as our founders hoped it would.”
