Weekly Update from CCM

Dear Students,

It's another great week in the 'Whee.  Here's what we have happening at Catholic Campus Ministry.
Come to dinner tomorrow at 6:30!  Jessica Keene (the birthday girl!) is serving up sloppy joes for us.  After, Joseph (a non-sloppy Joe) will be leading us in a discussion about Tips for Catholic College Students – how your faith can help you navigate the stresses of college life.  Come learn something; and share some of your own tips and suggestions.
Take a Hike!  Fr. John Eckert, pastor of Sacred Heart in Tryon, will be visiting his good friend Fr. Voitus this Friday.  We want to show them the beauty of our mountains, so we are organizing a hike to Cullowhee Falls.  We'd love for you to come join us.  Gather at the Catholic Student Center at 3:30pm.  We'll drive down to the trail head from here.  The hike itself is just under 2 miles and is a moderate hike, so wear good footwear.  And bring a camera!
Mass at 7:30pm in our chapel.  Rosary 30 minutes before Mass.  Confession available 30 minutes before Mass.  Our Credo session after Mass this week will be on the subject of Creation.  What does the Catholic Church teach about creation, evolution, the origin of the universe, man and all that?  Come with your questions!
Have you joined up with one of our small groups yet?  They are a fantastic way to delve deeper into scripture and build your relationship with God and with your fellow Catholics here at WCU.  Here is our regular meeting schedule – note the Thursday night group has changed location.  All groups meet at 6:30pm.
MONDAY – Central Common Room
TUESDAY – Balsam Lobby
THURSDAY – UC Balcony <-new location!
THURSDAY (Grad Students) – Catholic Student Center
The graduate student group is also open to older undergrads and young adult faculty.

Our Fall Beach Retreat is filling up fast!  Only four available spots are left.  If you'd like to join us on our trip to Folly Beach, SC, Oct. 25-27, please register soon.  The cost is $50 and covers all your meals on-site.  The theme this year is Saints and Sinners.  If you have already registered, please be sure to pay your fee to Matt.  Register online here.

We continue to offer 30 minutes of Adoration time, usually around lunch, several days during the week.  Please continue to check our Facebook Group each day for Adoration opportunities.
Have a blessed week!
