Dear friends,

As many of you already know, Brenda Lucas is right now fighting for her life in the hospital. We all feel helpless in situations like this but we believe that the best thing we can do is to unite in prayer for Brenda, for her family and for all who know and care about Brenda.

I would invite everyone who can to come to mass today at 5:30 pm at Saint Agnes Church and stay for a Rosary immediately after mass. The Rosary should start around 6 pm (in case you can’t come for the mass). PLEASE SHARE THIS PRAYER INVITATION with all your friends and feel free to post it in your social media. Hope to see you there.

This upcoming June 2020 I am leading the study-abroad program “Culture and Contemporary Life in Portugal and the North of Spain.” In a collaboration with FLAD’s Study in Portugal Network, and our colleagues at the U. of Santiago de Compostela, we will be staying 27 days in Lisbon, Porto and Santiago de Compostela (including day trips to Sintra, Coimbra, Guimarães, the Douro Valley, Vigo, Lugo and Cape Finisterra). This course generates 6 units of SDSU credit and is open to non-SDSU students. Students can choose to enroll in Portuguese or Spanish courses and will conduct readings and complete assignments in the specific languages, accordingly. Students who do not speak Portuguese nor Spanish can also enroll in other SDSU General Education courses (Art and General Studies) and complete their readings and assignments in English. This promises to be a very enriching program, at a relative low cost: $5223 (includes lodging, all transportation in the countries, some meals, 3 to 4 star hotels in Lisbon and Porto, the individual rooms at the USC dorms, international insurance, all entrances to museums, etc., and even some meals). I have recorded a 30-minute video info-session, covering a slideshow on the contents of the program and instructions on how to enroll: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvLFmnoK0mE&feature=youtu.be Registration ends by March 15.
