Schell Award Winner - 2013
Congratulations to Katie Warner!

Campus Ministry's departmental award, The Schell Award, is named for Rev. Joseph Schell, S.J., who founded JCU's Campus Ministry department in 1971. Fr. Schell was renowned for his wisdom, gentle spirit, sense of humor, devotion to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola and commitment to "a faith that does justice."  This award honors a senior who has provided consistent and outstanding leadership in Campus Ministry through retreats, immersion experiences, liturgy and prayer, CLC (Christian Life Community), and justice education, and who exemplifies living as a "woman or man for others."

Students for Social Justice


Our first meeting will be held on April 30, 2013 from 7pm to 8pm in the Jardine Room.  We will be explaining the current committees within the organization, and what it means to be a student for social justice. 
"The purpose of Students for Social Justice shall be a commitment to two interrelated values of John Carroll's mission: intellectual inquiry that demands critical thinking, and engaging in social justice and community service that leads to social action.  We are a network of people passionate about different issues of social justice.  We are looking for students willing to help carry out events that they are passionate about to help make the John Carroll community more aware of social justice issues and to foster action and advocacy."


There will be  food for all those in attendance.   Questions - Contact Julie Lazanich.

"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a 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!
