Weekly update from CCM

Dear Students,

God is smiling down on us with this warm spring weather!  I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful day in Cullowhee.  I'd like to thank those of you who took the time this past Saturday to leave campus and head into the "big city" of Asheville to tour the historic Basilica of St. Lawrence.  Everyone who went had a great time, and it was especially nice to be able to enjoy that fellowship time with your fellow Catholic students.  Look for the pics on Facebook!

The semester is quickly wrapping up, so please don't miss these final opportunities to get together with one another before it's home for summer break.

This Wednesday for supper, Alex is cooking for us.  Please gather at the Center at 6:30pm for a home cooked meal.  (If the weather stays this nice, perhaps we'll eat outside!)  Afterwards, we'll be learning how to make our own tied knot rosaries.  If you've ever wanted to make your own rosary, here is your chance.  And if you have never wanted to make your own rosary, now's the time to change your mind!  Whether you make one for yourself, for a friend, or to give away to another ministry, such a a prison or hospital ministry, making your own rosary can be a great spiritual help.  We'll also talk about praying the rosary, and have information about groups you can donate your rosaries to.

Remember, Eucharistic Adoration from 4-5pm.  For the rest of the semester!

Join us for the Rosary at 7:00pm.  Mass at 7:30pm.  This will be the second-to-last Mass on campus before the end of the semester, so please come!

Are you staying on campus over the summer?
I'd like to compile a list of those of you who are taking summer courses or will otherwise be around over the summer break.  We'd like to be able to get together, perhaps for a summer Bible study, or just for fellowship (or at least car pool to Mass!).  But first we need to know who will be around.  So let me know, either by email, facebook, or in person.  Thanks!

God bless everyone, and have a wonderful week!
