1.) Homecoming Weekend (May 27 & 28)

CAM kicks off the Summer Break by hosting a College Ministry table in the back of the narthex. College students are encouraged to stop by after Mass to register for College Ministry and pick  up a summer calendar.
CAM members are needed to staff the table after Mass. Sign up HERE.

2.) Send Off Weekend (August 6)

At the end of summer, there is a Send Off Blessing for college students at the 12:45pm Mass. After the Mass, CAM hosts a lunch for the students. CAM members and the college students get to know one another during the meal. Different roles for CAM members include: Setting up tables and chairs in the Social Hall, decorating for the meal, signing in young adults and alumni as they arrive for lunch, coordinating the lunch, contributing items to the lunch, attending the lunch and sitting with the college-aged young adults.

Sign up will be made available closer to the date.

3.) Prayer 

Each member of the College Alumni Ministry will be assigned one student in the College Ministry to pray for throughout the school year. This is the most important part of the ministry- remembering the young adults in our prayers as they work to keep their faith strong, live a Christian lifestyle, do well in school, and build healthy relationships!

CAM hosts optional (but highly encouraged!) Holy Hours on the 3rd Sundays of every month. They are from 6-7pm in the St. Louis Chapel during regular Adoration hours. We would love parents of college students to attend as well! 

Each week, CAM will dedicate our prayers to a particular college student. CAM members will get a text at the beginning of the week stating the name of the student and any intentions they might have.

4.) Cards & Care Packages

Katie will provide CAM members with a suggested “card and care package schedule” throughout the year. Members are expected to send something to their college student monthly through the CYM. This often means writing a a card or sending in $10-20 for Katie to put together a care package in your name and send to the students’ schools.

To see an example of the Care Package Schedule, see the one from last year: Care Package Schedule 2016-2017
