St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 810 N. Highland Ave., and local alumni will celebrate Saint Augustine’s University Day on Sunday, Feb. 23 during the 11 a.m. worship service.

She assumed the presidency in December 1999, and under her presidency, the university has experienced increased enrollment, re-instituted the football program and established several innovative degree-granting programs, including Biomedical and Scientific Communication, Forensic Science and Film and Interactive Media.
On Aug. 1, 2012, the college became Saint Augustine’s University and is on target to offer its first master’s degree program – Physician Assistant Studies – in the fall.
The Saint Augustine’s University Choir will render musical selections during the service. The choir is under the direction of Dr. Eric Poole, who wears many hats, including those assistant professor of music and chair of Visual and Performing Arts.
A reception will follow the service. All are welcome to attend. The Rev. Dr. Hector Sintim is Priest in Charge at Saint Stephen’s.
