Here are a few of the projects that we could use your help with, either ongoing events to help our students come to know and follow Jesus Christ, or projects to expand and develop our ministry.
We're trying to expand our video and social media presence in order to best speak to students in a way that attractively shows the beauty and truth of the faith. Funds from this account can help cover cameras, free-lance help, and other equipment to help us bring the Gospel to the digital arena and to tell the story of Jesus Christ in more powerful ways.
Bosco Night Dinners
Every Wednesday during the academic year, after Mass we offer our students a free dinner and a chance to grow as a community. It's a great chance for our students to get to know each other, take a break from studies, and enjoy a home-cooked meal in their home away from home.
Every Thursday during the Fall Semester, we offer Alpha, which is a program designed to give people a space to ask the big questions of life. A bit part of that experience is gathering to share a meal to help build a sense of family and a sense of welcome.
Each year, we offer a number of retreats for our students as a chance to leave the homework and projects at home for a few days, and to make space for a renewed encounter with Christ. Retreat weekends can be immensely fruitful and important steps in our faith journey.
Vestments & Chalices
Our sacristy is small, and the chapel here does not have any vestments or chalices other than what the priest Chaplain brings with him. Most of our chapel accessories are hand-me-downs from other parishes. Your help would be greatly appreciated to make the liturgy a more beautiful and transcendent experience for our students.
Building & Capital Improvements
We'd love to re-sod our lawn, improve our
fire-pit, and make the Catholic Chapel a more welcoming and beautiful place for students and visitors to relax while they are on-campus.
