Fr. Ray was out this week checking up on the seminarians, and in his absence he offered me the opportunity to share a little about campus ministry. We just wrapped up our spring directing team meeting for the Campus Ministry Leadership Institute that we will be hosting in June. The directing team is made up of a group of twenty students and campus ministers from five different universities. We spent Friday evening and all day Saturday praying and planning at Newman, Holy Cross Retreat Center, and on campus. There is still much work to be done, but we are well on our way to hosting a great CMLI!
Many students are also preparing for a few important events: Aggie Awakening V, the Alternative Spring Break Service Trip to Albuquerque, and a road trip to the LA Religious Education Congress. These three events offer a snapshot of many of the goals and values of our campus ministry program. Each in their own way, allow excellent opportunities for students to exercise leadership, offer their time and talents to serve the common good, to learn more about the Catholic faith, and to experience the richness of the local and universal Church. Please continue to keep our efforts in prayer!
