Weekly Update from CCM

Dear Students,

Our prayers are with you as you complete your exams this week.  A reminder that there will be no CCM dinner tonight.

This is the last weekly update email until August.  I will continue to send out Sunday Gospel reflections over the summer.

St. Mary's is offering a Baccalaureate Mass this Saturday, May 11, at 1:00pm for our graduates and their families.  There will be a light reception to follow.  If you are graduating and would like to be recognized at this Mass, please email me at  Anyone who would like to pray with and celebrate our graduates is welcome to attend this Mass.  

This Mass is at St. Mary's, not at the Catholic Student Center.  If you need to send directions to the church to your families, the address is 22 Bartlett St, Sylva, NC 28779.

Masses are not offered on campus during the summer months.  Last Sunday was our final Mass on campus this semester.  Our next Mass on campus will be Sunday, August 17.  For those in Cullowhee over the summer, please take advantage of St. Mary's Mass times; 9:00am and 11:00am on Sunday morning, or 8:00pm Saturday night (in Spanish).  If anyone needs a ride to St. Mary's, please let me know or use our Facebook Group to arrange carpools.

We do not have a weekly schedule of activities during the summer.  If any students around during the summer would like to meet and get together for prayer, faith sharing, fellowship, etc., I encourage this.  Again, I suggest using our Facebook Group to plan those details.  

I am around all summer and reachable via email, phone or text for anyone who needs me.

I know many of our students are from Charlotte or surrounding areas.  If you are going to be near Charlotte over the summer, consider taking advantage of a summer Bible study being offered for college age students.
