COLLEGE OUTREACH MINISTRY
College Ministry is designed to meet the needs of college students as they tackle issues on college campuses and face the challenges of living out their faith in the real world. It’s about community. It’s about growing in faith. It’s about learning true discipleship. It’s about rooting ourselves in Jesus. This is a ministry offering a variety of programs, events and experiences to help college students in all walks of faith. We welcome students while the are home from break as well as those around the community (and surrounding communities) during the year.
PLEASE CONTACT CHRIS EPPLETT, College Outreach Director, for meetings dates, times and locations.
COLLEGE NIGHT: (SUMMER ONLY) These prayerful, focused nights are meant to help students focus on areas in their lives the Lord is calling them to examine while in His Presence. Each night has a short talk/reflection, followed by Eucharistic Adoration with Praise & Worship music. Reconciliation is usually offered, as well.
ASCEND: During the school year, these topical nights explore various areas relevant to the lives of college students. Topics range from answering deep questions like “Why Am I Here?” to digging into Scripture to studying what leaders like St. Pope John Paul II had to say about the connection of faith and reason or Pope Benedict XVI says about truth. Students enter into deep and meaningful discussion and connect through fellowship. Ascend meets in a casual, home setting Tuesday evenings 8-9:30 p.m.
NIGHT RUN & NIGHT PRAYER: Beginning Fall 2017, we invite you to bring your headlamp, a bright shirt or reflective vest and running shoes as we run down Hines Drive in Plymouth for a 5K. Afterwards, we’ll pray Night Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours. Join each Tuesday 10-11 p.m.
SOCIAL GATHERINGS are offered regularly. See SPECIAL OFFERINGS below.
We have a number of activities for college students. Chris is regularly available for individual meeting and mentoring. Some of our upcoming events include:
