Thoughts and Prayers from Fr. Engh

To all our alumni who are suffering from the ravages of Hurricane Sandy, our prayers go out to you and your families. The impact of the storm has been unimaginable in the devastation it left behind – the destruction of homes, the loss of power and infrastructure, the displacement of multitudes of people, and the death of loved ones. Though physical distance may separate us, the Santa Clara University community remains with you in our hearts.
