Typhoon Haiyan: Help The Philippines Survive and Recover
The impact of Super Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines has been devastating, causing the loss of thousands of lives as well as widespread damage, including landslides and flooding. The impact of the storm is even more upsetting when we recall that many of those who were affected by this typhoon had already been left homeless by an earthquake in mid-October.
Those who would like to assist relief efforts may make contributions through humanitarian organizations that are conducting relief operations, such as Catholic Relief Services. Your contributions to organizations such as this ensure a well-coordinated and well-resourced humanitarian response. If you prefer, you may donate through a check made out to USF, with “Catholic Relief Services” in the memo line. These checks should go to Kim Rockett in Campus Ministry.
Thank you for your continued dedication to assisting those in need!
Theology on Tap
Join other young adults from the Fort Wayne area on Thursday, December 12, at 6:30 PM at Calhoun Street Soups, Salads & Spirits as the Young Adult Ministry office of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend presents Theology on Tap. Facebook & website
Damaged: Why We Need the Sacraments of Healing
Father Ben Muhlenkamp will be leading us in reflection over some of the richest gifts Christ left his Church. He will discuss the two sacraments of healing: reconciliation and anointing of the sick. Bring your questions, and you may win a great book from Our Sunday Visitor.
Father Ben was ordained a priest in 2012 and is now serving as the associate pastor at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. He received a degree in organizational leadership and supervision at IPFW, and he attended the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, for six years.
Theology on Tap is a speaker and conversation series for young adults in their 20s & 30s, single and married, to learn more about the Catholic faith, enter into conversation with their peers, and make connections between faith and everyday life.
NO Sunday Mass till January 12
Due to Christmas Break, there will be no Sunday Mass at 7:00 PM until January 12, 2014.
MLK Day Trip
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is just around the corner; although there are no classes on that date, here’s a new opportunity to celebrate that day, thanks to the generous support of SGA. Join with the Center for Service Engagement, Campus Ministry, Student Life and SGA on a trip to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (Museum) in Cincinnati, OH, on Monday, January 20, 2014, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (A Day On, Not a Day Off). We'll leave promptly at 5:30 AM from the North Campus Parking Lot and we will return in the early evening of that same day.
Cost of the trip for USF students is $15; cost for non USF students and USF faculty and staff is $25. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To sign up, bring a check made out to USF for $15 to the Center for Service Engagement (now located in Campus Ministry) by Wednesday, January 15 (DEADLINE EXTENDED). You will be asked to also sign a waiver form at that time.
Alternative Spring Break Trip
Back in 2008, Campus Ministry began sponsoring a trip during Spring Break that was not the normal vacation week. This Alternative Spring Break instead sends students to do service for a week. We have sent USF students and a few employees each year to rural Kentucky to participate in the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) WorkFest - joining students from other colleges and universities from around the country, especially the Midwest.
We plan to send a group each March and would love for you to join! The dates this year are March 9-14, 2014. The group will be led down to Kentucky by a few USF employees who will serve alongside the students. The trip leaves on the Sunday morning of Spring Break (March 9) and then comes back to campus on the following Friday (March 14). Highlights include:
- Housing assistance (repair, painting, roofing, siding, windows, doors, walls) in Eastern Kentucky
- Life-changing friendships
- Foot-stomping bluegrass
The cost per person is subsidized by Campus Ministry, so each person only has to pay $100. This includes transportation, lodging, and all food. If you are interested in participating in CAP WorkFest, then please e-mail email@example.com.
