Student Activities Hall

If you participated in a winter (New Orleans, Nicaragua) or spring break (Belize, DR, Guatemala, South Dakota, West Virginia) service trip, plan to attend this mandatory gathering at which we will eat (bring a random dish of food with you to share), reflect, pray, and imagine the future!
Lenten Almsgiving
Mary Schletzbaum, a May 2013 Rockhurst University graduate,
is currently in Tanzania serving as a Jesuit Volunteer at Saint Peter Claver High School.  This Jesuit school is excited to begin its fourth year, though
construction of the campus continues as the school grows; many unfinished projects await funding.  One such project is the bathroom.  Right now there are not enough toilets to even begin to accommodate the 600+ students and teachers that are on campus.  Adding to this problem is the issue of frequent flooding in the current bathrooms when they are overused or when there is a heavy rain that washes the septic back up through the floor.  The dream is to install flush toilets (an upgrade from the manual-flush ceramic drop toilets currently in use) and a much improved, more hygienic and environmentally-friendly septic system. 
Estimated Project Cost: $2500.

Prayer for the Week

God of stillness and
creative action,
help us to find space
for quietness today
that we may live
discover the inner
meaning of silence,
and learn the
that heals the world.
Send peace and joy
to each quiet place,
to all who are
and listening.
May your still small
voice be heard
through Christ, in
the love of the Spirit
