          The guest Speaker for the day was Fr. John R. Sheehan S.J., who is the President of The Xavier Society for the Blind as well as the chaplain of the Notre Dame Club of New York.  Fr. Sheehan told the exciting story of his life, which included life threatening moments in Africa, ministry work in the south pacific, to living blindfolded for a month in order to prepare himself for his work with the blind.  Fr. Sheehan thanked everyone for the opportunity to speak, the gathered guests all were captivated by Fr. Sheehan's lifelong record of service.
