  • Fr. Malachi Van Tassell (32nd President)

    Saint Francis University is celebrating the inaugural year of  Fr. Malachi Van Tassell who took office in May 2014. The year will be populated with a series of events relating to the theme "...Onwards toward the highest principles."

    Fr. Malachi selected the theme, based on a Homily by Pope Francis in which he stated, "We Christians were not chosen by the Lord for little things; push onwards toward the highest principles. Stake your lives on noble ideals, my dear young people."  It is in this spirit that Fr. Malachi asks the entire University Community to come together in "pushing onwards toward our highest principles."
