Founder's Day
by Dan Armstrong
Founder's Day - Nov. 1, 2012
The entire Dominican University community is encouraged to celebrate the life and work of Fr. Samuel Mazzuchelli, founder of the Sinsinawa Dominicans, during the university's annual Founder's Day on Thursday, November 1. 

A variety of events will be held on the day. 

The day will kick off with Mass commemorating All Saints Day, held at noon in Rosary Chapel. MaDonna Thelen, director of community-based learning, will preach. 

Beginning at 2:20 p.m., all are invited to enjoy free birthday cake and treats, which will be served in the Parmer Hall Atrium, the Lewis Link and outdoors at the Legacy Sculpture. This tradition honors Fr. Sam's birthday. 

At 4:30 p.m., all are invited back to Rosary Chapel for the Mazzuchelli Lecture. Rev. James Barnett, OP, will deliver a talk titled "All Are Immigrants." The lecture will explore the lives and legacy of four historical Dominican voices for justice: Bartolomé de las Casas, Antonio Montesinos, Samuel Mazzuchelli and St. Catherine of Siena.

Following the lecture, all are invited to enjoy a special Founder's Day Dinner in the Dining Hall. As is traditional at Dominican, an Italian fest will be served in honor of Fr. Sam's Italian heritage. 

For more information about any of the events, contact Sr. Mary Ann Mueninghoff at x6251. To learn more about Fr. Sam, visit http://www.dom.edu/about/Mission-History/Our-Founder/​.
