As the calendar inches closer to the Lenten Season, campus ministry, is running on all cylinders! This weekend a group of students are up in Ruidoso for Camp Amistad, our annual winter mini-retreat. This retreat offers a great opportunity for students to get away from the stress of studies to blow off steam with some team building activities, prayer and reflection in the beautiful Sacramento Mountains. A new initiative, Men’s and Women’s groups began meeting on Tuesday and our Campus Outreach team is working on energizing tabling. Tabling serves as a great initial opportunity to interact with students and share not only our events and programs, but also the energy and enthusiasm of the NMSU Catholic community.
When we gather for these events, and the all the other events throughout the semester, I am keenly aware that we are truly blessed with some amazing students who put so much of their time and energy into these activities. They are faith filled and work tirelessly to balance their studies and part time jobs as they put their faith into action. Please continue to keep them and their efforts in your prayers!
