Although school at NMSU and DACC has been in session for several weeks, the welcome activities are still in full swing. Last Tuesday we participated in AggieFest, a fun showcase of student organizations and departments. Students who stopped by at our table were greeted by campus ministry students and… Pope Francis! Well, a cardboard cut-out of Pope Francis. It was a great opportunity to connect with new students and share about upcoming events at Newman.
This weekend campus ministry staff and students are helping with parking duty for the annual Franciscan Festival of Fine Arts at Holy Cross Retreat Center. It’s a great outdoor festival celebrating art, food, and community in the beauty of the outdoors. The festival runs Saturday from 9am til 5pm and Sunday from 10am til 4pm. If you go, be sure to check out the new labyrinth Sal and a group of students helped put in over the summer. It’s located near the chapel and Rosary Walk.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
