SJC TT with Initials

Dear SJC Alumni and Friends,

The Saint Joseph’s College Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that after many months of good faith negotiations with its lender we have reached an amicable agreement that allows us to begin to move forward.  While specific terms of the agreement are confidential, Saint Joseph’s College will retain our Rensselaer Campus, Lake Banet, Drexel Hall and surrounding property where Saint Joseph’s began, and the Waugh Farm.

While our agreement with the lender is a major step forward, many things still need to be accomplished to realize our goal of bringing the Rensselaer campus back to life.  As we continue to make progress in attaining that goal, a specific timetable to getting there will depend on fundraising, partnerships, and building out a sound operational plan that will allow a revived SJC to thrive in the years to come.

To celebrate this milestone, our Chapel will be open for Mass at 11:00 A.M. Sunday, October 7th, with our Campus Grounds open for visits until 1:00 P.M.  For those that are going to the SJCAAI Homecoming weekend on the 5th and the 6th of October, or for those that were considering going, we hope you can all join us afterwards!


With gratitude and prayers,

Rev. Larry J. Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S.                                        Rev. Barry Fischer, C.PP.S.

Chairman, SJC Board of Trustees                                          Rector, Saint Joseph’s College
