Barb Arland-Fye, a new master’s graduate, poses with Sister Joan Lescinski, CSJ, president of St. Ambrose University in Davenport, and Bishop Martin Amos during the university’s spring commencement May 11.

First, the potential to develop a deeper understanding of the Catholic Church, which in turn would enhance my work as editor of The Catholic Messenger; and second, personal growth in my faith journey and participation in the life of the Church.
