So it’s been a wonderful time so far this weekend at my alma mater St. Bonaventure University, where I came to visit yesterday during the annual “homecoming” or alumni weekend. I was in town for a book signing (see the photo) and to cheer on the SBU women’s and men’s basketball teams — two excellent victories, by the way — as well as to join the campus music ministry this morning for a guest appearance as the liturgical accompanist on piano. All were great fun.
This evening I head up to St. Joseph University Parish at The University at Buffalo to preach at the 8:00 pm Mass and spend some time with folks afterwards for a late dinner and to talk about my new book, Dating God: Live and Love in the Way of St. Francis. If you are in the greater Buffalo area, stop on down, it’s open to all. There will be an opportunity to pick up copies of the book at a discounted rate and to have them signed by the author if you are interested.
For those readers of DatingGod.org who are students at St. Bonaventure University, the campus ministry office has announced today at the campus masses that the first 25 people to come by the Thomas Merton Center (University Ministries) on Monday can receive a free autographed copy of the book! Can’t beat that deal! Thanks to the generosity of the campus ministry office at SBU for that!
