Welcome Teresa Querciagrossa

I am delighted to announce that Teresa Querciagrossa will join our team on Monday, November 13th. Teresa will be supporting Eileen Murdock, Jeff Fersch, and Megan Macri in our Chicago office. Teresa is a Holy Cross College graduate and served as the Basilica’s Asst. Sacristan following college. She comes to us after a two year stint in New York, where she worked in Stewardship and Special Events at NYU School of Law.

Teresa enjoys weight-lifting, climbing and back-packing, cooking and baking, and traveling. She hails from Southern California and her claim to fame is the fact that she knows New York City “better than anyone.” While living in NYC, she would intentionally “lose” herself in the city, just so she could figure out where she was, and thus she learned all about the Big Apple by using that creative method.

Please join me in welcoming Teresa to the Regional Development administrative team!

Condolences to Krys Montague and Family

Please join me in extending condolences to Krys Montague and her family on the passing of her mother, Josephine Sieroslawski. Josephine passed away early Saturday morning, November 4th, surrounded by her loving family. Our Krys was a deeply devoted daughter. She often shared heart-warming and sometimes humorous stories about her mom’s antics and can-do spirit. The Regional Development Administrative team came to know Krys’ mom during these last years and was privileged to provide Krys love and support, especially during these last few months. As Krys said, late on Saturday morning, her “mother is now dancing the polka in heaven.”
Please see the link below for wake and funeral arrangements.

Irish1Card Available at ESC 11/6 & 11/7

The university is transitioning to a contactless identification card system, called Irish1Card.  If your card looks like the sample below, you will need to have your card replaced.

The card services team will be in the Hesburgh Conference Room at Eddy Street Commons on Monday, November 6 from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm and Tuesday, November 7 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm to assist with the replacement of your existing card.

To receive a new Irish1Card you will need to bring your current ID card with you and be prepared to have a replacement photo taken. Please note, spouses will also need to transition to the new Irish1Card.  Spouses are welcome to come to the Eddy Street card replacement sessions.  If a spouse’s card is expired, they will first need to go to the Human Resources office to have it reactivated.

If you or a spouse are unable to make it to the card replacement sessions at Eddy Street, or if you are located in other buildings across campus, you can get your Irish1Card directly from the Card Services office located at 423 Grace Hall.  The card services office is open Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Please note, all monetary balances, door access, and other card privileges will remain the same on the new card.


Development Halloween Party update

Due to “Roz” getting her paperwork messed up and not having it in to the Halloween Committee on time, we  neglected to include Gift Planning as being part of the winners in the Development Halloween Party for their spectacular display of Monsters, Inc.

Anita, Annie, Carolyn, Anne, Jennifer, Brooke and William, along with Jill and  Andrew will be celebrating their WIN with a lunch of their choice.
