Eucharistic Adoration is offered from 9pm-10pm every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening in the Mabee Chapel.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity for quiet prayer and rest in Christ's presence.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation with Fr. Luke Byrne, SJ is now offered on Tuesday evenings from 6pm-7pm at the Jesuit Residence.  Use the entrance directly across from the Campus Ministry Center.  A Campus Ministry student worker will be present to let you in.  Feel free to join us for Pasta and Prayer beforehand then venture over to the Jes Res after dinner.

Students for Life is gathering every Tuesday evening at 9pm in the Mabee Chapel to pray a Rosary for Life.  Don't have a rosary with you at school?  Not to worry, free glow-in-the-dark rosaries are available.

Recycling Blessed Palms


Do you have blessed palms from last year's Palm Sunday?  

Bring them to SFX within the next couple of weeks so that they may be burned and used to create ashes for this year's Ash Wednesday service.

Immigration Reform



 Add your voice to that of the U.S. Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Jesuit provincials by asking congress to pass humane comprehensive immigration reform! 

You are invited to participate in Ignatian Family Advocacy Month, which is a coordinated, nationwide effort of direct advocacy. 

Come to learn more about immigration reform and then join a group of Rockhurst students as we visit the local offices of our U.S. Senators and Representatives.

Prayer for the Week

Father of the poor, God of love, you made us all your children; we praise You and thank You. Full us with a sense of justice. Help us in your work, to take the side of the homeless, the struggling, the lowly, to defend the newcomer, to welcome the stranger. Help us now to befriend the friendless, protect the weak children, and work for the rights of all. Lord, on our journey home, bring us together in peace, in justice, and in love, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
