Chaplain’s Report – April 2015
Happy Easter every one!
Ok, so Easter Day was four weeks ago at the start of the month, but it is still Easter and we continue to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord! This past month of April was “Apologetics April” as the theme of our faith formation and outreach.
When we think of apologetics we think typically of catholic apologetics, but we opted to be
untypical and chose the theme of ‘Christian Apologetics’. The purpose of focusing on the
fundamentals of our Christian faith is to remind ourselves that the world, or the United States, is not universally Christian. As we know, 80% of students lose all connection to church and faith
during their college years; therefore we should know how to explain our Christian faith, even
before our catholic faith, to those folks who are hostile or at the very least are unreceptive.
The other major thing that happens in April is officer elections for our catholic student
organizations – please pray for our new Knights of Columbus leadership, our new Kappa Upsilon Sigma leadership, our new Core Team members and, hopefully, a renewed St. Agnes Court of Catholic Daughters.
Again, thank you for your support and encouragement – St. Mary’s Catholic Campus Ministry exists because of your support.
