Fr. Kookoothe is a Catholic priest, lawyer, nurse, and advocate for the social justice issue of wrongful convictions.  Mr. D'Ambrosio is a victim of wrongful conviction.  Their story is incredibly moving and eye opening to the real issue of wrongful conviction of innocent people.  This event is sponsored by the following at JCU:  Arrupe Scholars Program; Catholic Studies; Peace, Justice, & Human Rights; Political Science Department; Program in Applied Ethics; and the Psychology Department.

"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a new student-initiated prayer group on campus that has two goals: 1) to spread the awareness and power of prayer, 2) to break down religious divides. Anonymous prayer requests can be submitted, using this Wufoo form,  and each request will be distributed to the "prayer angels," who will personally pray for each intention. Anyone can submit a prayer request. Contact Ashley for more information.
Make a prayer request or mass intention!
