The Gift of Community

“Oh, what a favor to be a member of a community, for each member shares in the good that is done by all.” *— Vincent de Paul

Each of us has a role to play, and something important to contribute, to the whole enterprise that is DePaul University. We recognize ourselves to be part of a community gathered together for the sake of a shared mission. Whether our role places us out front or behind the scenes, our personal success always depends to some degree on the work of others. Consider taking a moment this week to give thanks to a colleague whose work contributes to what you do every day, someone who makes your experience in this community a little brighter and more effective. *Ryan, Rybolt, eds., Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac: Rules, Conferences, and Writings (1995), 201.
