Mass of the Holy Spirit/Celebration of James J. '58 and Frances Maguire's Historic Gift

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

From Saint Joseph’s beginnings in 1851, the start of each fall semester has been marked by the celebration of the Mass of the Holy Spirit, which brings together the University community to ask for God’s blessings on the academic year. On Tuesday, Sept. 12, the event was made even more special as students, faculty, staff and alumni took the opportunity to thank James J. Maguire, Class of 1958, his wife Frances, and their family, for their transformative $50 million gift to the University, which was announced in July.
