Featured Testimonial About Creighton University
Christmas is the feast of love incarnate.
This week, students, faculty and staff gathered outside St. John's Church for a Creighton Christmas tradition — the lighting of the Mall!
Guests and a few speakers — including Creighton President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ, PhD — offered prayers, gave thanks and enjoyed Christmas cookies after the ceremony. A few even scored a selfie with St. Nick!
What follows are photos from the event. Merry Christmas!
