The sunburst also signifies Jesus. Beneath it, the star signifies Mary and the spikenard flower honors St. Joseph. For more information see:

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.
Campus Crusade for Christ
Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) meets every Wednesday at 7pm in the Campus Ministry conference room. They are a non-Catholic organization, although Catholics and people of all religions are welcome to join us. Each meeting is very casual and fun. The group breaks down the Bible and then applies those basic lessons to their lives.
Interested in learning more? Come to their next meeting or contact Rachel Distler with questions.
