Happy Retirement Msgr. Braun!

Braun was instrumental in facilitating the iPad 1:1 Program while he was the Rector at Garces and the students wanted him to be able to enjoy using one as well.  The students also presented him with a Garces sweatshirt to help keep him warm on the sidelines of the football games this fall.  Msgr.
