May 17, 2020 “Today, the chapel bells will play again for the Class of 2020. They have been silent for over two months. Today, we will light a candle as we did only four years ago to begin your journey at St. Lawrence. You have known the bond of belonging. You feel that every single day since you joined this community. It is a bond that has tremendous strength, the ability to carry us through the issues of life and the days of a great challenge.” WILLIAM L. FOX ’75, PRESIDENT
