catholic life

Catholics at Wesleyan are first of all a community gathered around the Eucharist. It was not too long ago that there was no priest chaplain. The students were asked if they would accept a lay chaplain. They said they would but that the Eucharist was what they needed the most.

In 2008, Fr. Hal Weidner, an Oratorian priest who functions both in the western Roman rite as well as in the Greek Catholic rite, became the chaplain. This part of the world has a number of Byzantine Catholics as well as Orthodox Christians.
