Weekly Update from CCM

Good morning, students!  Today is the memorial of St. Martin of Tours, a fourth century bishop who helped to evangelize Gaul (present day France).  One of the ways he accomplished this was making sure that the clergy received a good education.  May the prayers of St. Martin today encourage you in your education, and may your increase in knowledge be for the glory of God.

Here is this week's schedule:

Adoration from noon till 12:30, in the chapel.  Thirty minutes of silent prayer before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Community Table volunteer service from 3:30-6:00.  If you plan on coming with us, please be at CCM no later than 3:15 for a ride over.

Knights of Columbus Information Meeting at CCM at 6:00pm this evening.  Membership in the Knights is open to any Catholic male age 18 or over.  Anyone is welcome to attend this information meeting to learn about the Knights, who they are and what they do.

Small Group Bible Study from 6:30-7:30 in the Balsam Lobby.

Vespers at 6:00pm.  Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours, in the chapel.

Supper @ the Center at 6:30pm.  Jackie is cooking for us this week!  After dinner, Bekka will lead us in a program of fun and games!  Come relax with your CCM friends (or make new ones)!

Adoration from noon till 12:30 in the chapel.

Small Group Bible Study from 5:30-6:30 on the UC Balcony.

Football Event Parking - our last home game of the season, and our last chance for an event parking fundraiser!  If you can help us with parking before the game, please contact me!

Byzantine Liturgy at Immaculate Conception Church in Canton, NC.  It is a little drive from WCU but some of you may be interested.  This will be celebrated by the same Ukrainian Rite clergy who came to Sylva a few months ago.  Vespers will be prayed at 4:00pm with the Divine Liturgy (Mass) at 5:00pm.  

Confession & Rosary at 3:30pm.
Mass at 4:00pm
Credo after Mass: the topic this week will be "Morality & the Natural Law."  We begin now to look at how we know the difference between right and wrong.  Please join us, and come with questions!

Simply Stitched meets at Alex Cassell's house from 8:00 to 9:30pm.  If you need a ride, be at CCM by 7:45pm.  

Today, as I mentioned at the top of this email, is the memorial of St. Martin of Tours.  In many parts of the world, this day used to be known as "Martinmas." How did this fourth century bishop develop such a strong following that his feast would be celebrated by Catholics across the globe?  You can learn more about this saint and how the traditions of Martinmas came to be in this article:

Until next week!
