Michelle Williams will be on hand to welcome students back from break in Convocation on Monday, Oct. 9. Williams will share how a career as a member of Destiny’s Child, one of the most successful pop groups of all time, and as a solo artist has shaped her relationship with God.

On Wednesday, Oct. 11, students will hear from St. Benedict Preparatory School Headmaster Father Edwin Leahy as he shares the importance of Christian values within the world of education. In addition, Mike Donehey, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for Tenth Avenue North, will discuss the importance of following Jesus in his daily life and musical career.

As the university celebrates its annual Homecoming on Friday, Oct. 13, political commentator and radio talk show host Laura Ingraham will be the keynote Convocation guest. Ingraham will host her nationally syndicated radio show live from the Convocation stage. She said that she is excited to discuss what championing Christ in a critical world looks like.
