Welcome to the Washington University Catholic Student Center!
Spending the Summer in St. Louis?
Even though Mass & Soup is on vacation for the summer, the CSC will still have 11am Sunday Mass. Please be sure to join us!
There's nothing quite like summer in St. Louis! Now you just need to let us know you'll be here so that you can stay up to date on all the fun happenings 'round the CSC! BBQs, dinners, game nights, hikes, faith sharing groups, the Botanical Garden and much more! If it's even half as fun as last Summer, then we're gonna have a blast!
To keep up to date, contact Mark at email@example.com.
We Need Your Help with Our Gala Auction
The auction committee is already busy working to make this year's gala,
Nov. 1 at the Four Seasons, a huge success.
We are currently looking for any auction items you have that we could use in a Home and Garden section (i.e., gardening or grilling supplies, fire pit, accessories for the home, etc.) and bottles of wine that we could use in a wine "grab bag" section.
Please drop off any donations in Cathy Deneault's office and look for our auction signs in the yard to help remind you of what we need.
Science and Faith and Scholarships!
Are you studying in a field of science? Do you want to go deeper in exploring the relationship between faith and science? Consider the CSC's Faith and Science Fellowship. And get a scholarship to do so! Under the guidance of a theologian and a scientist, fellows learn about and discuss the challenges of integrating faith and science and the relevance of deepening faith and witnessing to it in a secularized world. You will also meet monthly with a spiritual director to discuss where you find God in your life and in your scientific study. To apply, contact Duncan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
2014-15 Winter Break Service Immersion Trip
On December 30th, 2013, nine students from the Catholic Student Center (CSC) at Washington University in St. Louis traveled to El Salvador for the CSC's annual winter break service immersion trip. Our team name is "Agape", as we hoped to embody the selfless, self-emptying love that the word signifies.
We worked with two organizations - Project FIAT and CEBES FUNDAHMER - to love and serve the people of El Salvador, to share in life with them, to live in solidarity, and to learn their stories.
Through this experience of service, immersion, learning, and wrestling with the systemic issues of politics, economics, history, culture, and religion that contribute to people's current way of life, we hope that our time there was not simply 11 days of service, but an experience that transforms our lives into a lifetime of love and service.
We will never forget the faith, courage, hope, and love of our dear friends in El Salvador. What we have experienced in them has touched our lives forever.
11 days... 9 students... 1 life-changing experience!
This coming year, we're headed to Puebla, Mexico! Don't worry, you'll be home for Christmas... and I suppose we'll make sure you're back before classes start.
For more info, talk to Mark (email@example.com). You almost certainly won't regret taking the plunge. And you definitely won't come back the same...
