Campus Ministry - What We Do!
Campus Ministry Events
Holy Hours - March 13 & April 24
“… if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7: 14
Our holy hours are prayerful nights of adoration, confession, and benediction that are open to students, community members, and visitors.
Every month, we gather at Newman to worship before the blessed sacrament; to experience the healing of reconciliation; and to celebrate in song, chant, and word the blessings of God given through His presence in the Eucharist.
Pensees Reading Group - March 19, April 16 & 30, May 14
“We are generally the better persuaded by the reasons we discover ourselves than by those given to us by others.” – Our monthly reading group aspires to discover the reasons Pascal spoke of through the medium he wrote about: thought. Each month, we will examine and analyze a written passage as we attempt to better understand our confounding and curious world. By seeking out reasons, through thinking, for the way things are, we will engage some of the deepest and most compelling questions of human existence. Pensees does not require outside reading, so please drop into any meeting! Also, Pensees welcomes all perspectives on the issues we cover: religious, areligious, skeptical, scientific, aesthetic, and wondering. All that is needed of participants is an open and inquiring mind and an appreciation for careful and respectful discourse.
Takeout Tuesdays - March 23, April 6 & 20, May 4
Every month, come enjoy lunch at the Newman Center! You can grab a takeout box on your way to class or stop by and share a meal with friends, your campus ministers, and some of our tireless and caring volunteers. It turns out that there is such a thing as a free lunch!
“For it is not knowing much, but realising and relishing things interiorly, that contents and satisfies the soul.” — St. Ignatius of Loyola
Thoughtful Thursdays are short video meditations designed for finding peace in an unquiet time in an unquiet world. Their purpose is to provide moments of considered calm for busy students during a year that’s been anything except calm. Each meditation will introduce students to varying figures and practices, within and without the Christian tradition, which will teach simple and small ways of finding interior quiet and mental order.
UBRooted - Tuesday, 7-9 PM
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” — Colossian 2: 6-7
UBRooted is a women’s group for college students who want to grow spiritually and in community with each other. Our purpose is to root our lives in the Lord through our faith and thankfulness for all He has done for us. We want all who come to our gatherings to better live this out in their own lives. Our name literally means ‘you be rooted (in Jesus)’.
We are so excited to meet you all and are thrilled for our future in UBRooted! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions, concerns, or ideas you have to share! Bring all of your fellow sisters and we will see you soon! :)
