Bob Hurd – a popular and successful Catholic teacher, composer and liturgist – has been composing liturgical music for more than 45 years. His repertoire includes the hymn, “Ubi caritas.”
In Latin, CARITAS is a noun with definitions that include the Christian love of humankind, charity. It is the name we have chosen for our advancement giving newsletter; Caritas: Duhawks Supporting Duhawks. The name and slogan were chosen because they tie in with Catholic tradition at Loras and the history of continued generosity displayed by our alumni, parents, friends and other longstanding supporters.
Loras College plans to publish Caritas three times annually. The goal is to celebrate the successes made possible by the thousands of Duhawks who generously support current and future students and the initiatives launched to make the Loras experience even better.
We look forward to sharing our stories and welcome your feedback. Feel free to send us story suggestions and other comments. Please let us know if you would like to be added to our mailing list.
