Widen the Circle of Mercy!
Did you know we offer SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES just about every day of the week? Check out our community service page for more info!
Every Monday: FiSH (Faith in Student Housing) 9 p.m. in the Glass Lounge
FiSH is a student-led program of Campus Ministry designed for students who live on-campus (and the commuters who hang out with them). It's a chance to talk about stuff that matters with people who care, designed to help you make new friends while growing in faith and talking about a wide variety of issues. Newcomers are always welcome, so check us out on Monday nights from 9-10 p.m. in the Glass Lounge of St. Brigid Hall.
Every Wednesday: Interfaith Prayer in Chapel at 11:30 a.m.
Are you intrigued by the idea of praying in different ways, using a variety of spiritual resources, led by faculty and staff from a variety of religious traditions? Would you love to pause in the middle of your week to pray with other members of our community? Then consider coming to Chapel (Campbell Hall) on Wednesdays from 11:30 - noon for Campus Ministry's new Interfaith Prayer. All are welcome!! (Note, there will be no Interfaith Prayer on 3/19 because of the memorial Mass for Peter Carlino at 11 a.m. in the Waldron Board Room.)
