Blessing for Exams

Pizza Reception after 10pm


We offer this prayer for exam time:


God, calm my fear at exam time.
Let the work I have done stand to me on the day.
Do not allow what remains undone
to undermine my courage.  And help me to make the best of my knowledge.
You have a loving plan for my whole life
and whatever the outcome.
Exams are a part of this plan.
Help me to see beyond this time and relish the opportunity to enjoy a refreshing break.

Campus Ministry Community Day 

Volunteers needed for Thursday, August 29th


Again this year Campus Ministry will be traveling to Cuyahoga Valley National Park with incoming First year students on Mission Day.   If you are living on campus next year you would move in on Wed., August 28th and we would require a training session that evening.  The day on Thursday will begin early (8:00 am) and continue until about 2:30 pm.   We will be having lunch at Happy Days Lodge at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  Our program that day allows first year students an opportunity to meet other students in a casual environment and to reflect on and dialogue about faith, spirituality, values, and meaningful relationships.

"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.
