TODAY: Palm Sunday
Eco-Palms at 6pm & 10pm Masses
This project is part of an interfaith effort led by Lutheran World Relief and the University of Minnesota. In the Chiapas region of Guatemala and Mexico fronds from eco-palms are harvested in a way that rewards workers for the quality of the frond rather than the quantity. This environmentally friendly approach limits the number of palms taken from a forest. Minimizing environmental impact is why the term "eco" is used, but the palms also represent economic justice for the harvesters.
Easter Mass Schedule
This week, John Carroll will have mass on campus Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at the usual times except there will be no Murphy Mass on Wednesday evening.
There are no Masses on campus after the 12:05pm Mass on Wednesday, March 27th until the 5:05pm Mass on Tuesday, April 2nd. See Gesu's Website for their mass schedule during this time.
Return your Rice Bowl

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.
