Catholic Campus Ministry - Weekly News--Lent Edition!
This week at CCM!
Welcome back from Spring Break! We hope it was a restful time for everyone!
Lent is halfway over!!
How are you doing on your Lenten resolutions? As for me (this is Fr. Ed, btw), I'm batting around .500: some things yes (a bit more prayer) other things no (still need to make a donation for my almsgiving!). Good for all of us, we still have a few weeks to go! So take another look at your resolutions, and see what you'd like to recommit to, and maybe make a change or two! God is always with us as we make our Lenten journey, and will help us see it through!
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, to journey together this Lent as a community, we've put together several opportunities for prayer and service during the Lenten season. Here are the primary ones:
: There is perhaps no better way to deepen our relationship with God than in the sacrifice of the Mass. Join us Mondays and Thursdays at 12:30, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:30. And, if you want to go to Mass on Friday, our FOCUS missionaries go together to St. Joseph Church for noon Mass. They leave from CCM at 11:30-anyone is welcome to join them!
Exposition of the Eucharist
: An important part of deepening prayer is silence. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:15, we spend time in quiet to celebrate the presence of Jesus among us.
Stations of the Cross
: We'll pray the Stations during our Bosco night on Apr. 12 (during Holy Week).
Lent is always about mercy and forgiveness. Each Wednesday during Exposition, a priest is here to hear confessions. Email Fr. Ed if you need to come at a different time.
: On Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays at 9am, a group meets to pray
Low Gluten hosts.
Fr. Ed recently purchased some low-gluten hosts...if you are gluten-intolerant, just let him know before Mass (please come a little early if you can), so that he can make these available for you.
Ministry Team Discernment
Come join us as we consider where we want to go next year! Are you interested in taking on a bigger role? Current team members will share their experiences, and give details about next year. Join us after Mass (approx. 7:15pm). Dinner is included!
Are you going?
might be going.
As always, let us know if there is anything we can do for you!
Fr. Ed, Sr. Karen, Denise and Celeste
