Five new rectors prepare to welcome students

first_img“Being able to accompany young women is an honor,” she said. “My overall goal is to be present for the students.” “Each dorm is so unique,” she said. “It’s a whole new set of traditions, people and building.” Annie Selak, Walsh Hall rector, said her goals for the dorm include helping the community grow within the dorm’s walls. “[The past few weeks] have been very busy,” she said. “We’ve had training. It’s been wonderful to meet people at Notre Dame.” Lewis Hall rector Layla Karst also graduated from Notre Dame in May with a Master of Divinity. She said her goal for the year is to learn about the community of Lewis.  She said she cries every time she watches Rudy and enjoys riding an all-terrain vehicle with her nephew while on holidays in her hometown of Pottsville, Pa.  “We’re all different,” she said. “We have to work at being an inclusive community. The girls will appreciate being wonderful and created by God.” “I want to make sure to have the strongest community we can,” she said. “I want to build upon what we already have here.” Students in Cavanaugh Hall, Lewis Hall, Pasquerilla West Hall, Sorin College and Walsh Hall will see new leadership in the dorm this year. “I’d encourage people to see the entire value of the relationships they build here,” he said. “I always call everyone ‘girls,’ no matter how old. It’s a youthful heart,” she said. “We all want that youthful heart.” Notre Dame is home to five new rectors this fall. He also said the dorm’s traditions foster important relationships. She said the hardest adjustment has been the college culture and time schedule.“I thought I was a night person — forget about it,” she said. An internship in spiritual direction during her education at the Catholic Theology University in Chicago changed her life, Hahner said. She also wants to work with Campus Ministry. Fr. Robert Loughery, known as Fr. Bob, joined Facebook as part of the effort to lead Sorin College.  The new rector of Pasquerilla West Hall, Sr. Mary Jane Hahner, said she ended up at Notre Dame because she wanted to work in ministry.  Maria Hinton, the new rector of Cavanaugh Hall, might have a better idea of the student schedule. A “double domer,” she graduated from the Notre Dame Law School in May and was an assistant rector in Lyons Hall for two years. Selak, who has lived all her life in California except for a year in Detroit, graduated from Santa Clara University and majored in religious studies and political science. She received her Master of Divinity at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. “It feels like coming home,” he said. “I want to share what I’ve experienced,” he said. “Faith calls service. I would like to somehow invite residents to continue and expand this awareness in the dorm.” “I want to know who makes up the community and bring out gifts and talents,” she said. She said she loves to travel on breaks. Originally from Idaho Falls, Idaho, she went to Whitworth College — now Whitworth University — in Spokane, Wash. She was an assistant rector in Pasquerilla East Hall for two years before becoming a rector. Loughery was born and raised in Indianapolis and graduated from Notre Dame in 1979 with a degree in architecture. He lived in Sorin as an undergraduate student.last_img read more

Premier League CEO says Black Lives Matter a moral cause, not a political one

first_imgBy Simon Evans(REUTERS) – Premier League CEO Richard Masters defended players’ and clubs’ collective decision to support the Black Lives Matter movement on Tuesday, describing it as a moral cause and not a political one.When the league restarted this month after a three-month stoppage due to the coronavirus pandemic, all players had “Black Lives Matter” on their shirts instead of their names in the opening round of games and they have continued to take a knee before kick-off in support of BLM.At a hearing of the British parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Conservative MP Steve Brine said the the league’s support for the movement appeared to mark a shift from its previous opposition to political messages in the sport.He highlighted previous cases of politics in English football such as when Arsenal distanced themselves from Mesut Ozil’s support for the Uighur Muslim population in China and when the league fined Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of Catalan independence campaigners. “How did we get from Ozil and Pep to Black Lives Matter, and can the Premier League players and managers now be assured that anything goes if they have a cause that they feel strongly about and the Premier League will not take action against them?” he asked Masters.“I think we are living in unprecedented times,” Masters replied. “Players are used to being the message board for other people’s messages and on this occasion they wanted to make two very clear statements as players, supported by the Premier League and the clubs: Thanking the NHS..and also recognising the issues that are going around the world and the support of the sentiment of Black Lives Matter,” he said.“We listened and are happy to support them.“I don’t think it sets any particular precedent. I think it is perfectly possible to support Black Lives Matter the sentiment without being seen to support any political organisation,” he said. “We are an apolitical organisation – we don’t support political organisations.”Masters said “all players” had backed the campaign, but he added that there would be a high bar for any future initatives which would have to be agreed upon.“We are drawing a clear distinction between a moral cause and a political movement or agenda. Whilst there may be a difficulty sometimes, dividing the two, our position is clear: Politics no, moral causes yes – when agreed,” he said.Masters said if players got involved in political messaging on the field without agreement they would remain in breach of regulations and could face fines. Labour MP Julie Elliott said she was concerned about Masters’ explanation. “I think you are opening up a can of worms by how you have responded to those questions,” she said.Masters reiterated that the decision to back BLM was a collective one, saying it had come out of conference call discussions with the captains of the Premier League clubs, and did not set a precedent.“This is all players coming together…it is a firm position from all players,” he said.“It doesn’t mean that whenever players on an individual (or) collective basis want to do something that the Premier League and clubs will be duty-bound to support it.”last_img read more
