The Albert J. Bischoff, S.J. Reflection Room in the Dorothy Day Center for Faith and Justice office was dedicated in honor of its namesake at his recent birthday celebration on Jan. 17.

The birthday party, with more than 200 people in attendance, featured cake and ice cream to celebrate

the campus minister's 85th birthday. The room is available for anyone to have a few quiet moments on campus. "When you're a busy student, you just want to get by yourself for a few moments to be quiet and think and pray. It's a place where you can do that," said Fr. Bischoff. He added that prayer pamphlets will be available to students, but they are also just welcome to sit there and reflect.

"Our message to all students is simple: Come visit the Fr. B. Reflection Room in the CFJ anytime you need a quiet moment or bit of peace during your day," Greg Carpinello, interim director of CFJ said via email. "It exists just for that reason." When asked what he thought about this room being dedicated in his honor, Fr. Bischoff responded,

"I was very touched by it…you never feel worthy for these things."

"Fr. B. has been a member of our department and a Husman Hall chaplain for countless years," said Carpinello. "All who encounter him on our campus can attest to the spirit he brings to each person: a spirit of care and concern and a spirit of acceptance and love."
