HOUSING 

Catholic Women's House Openings

The Women’s Houses have one year-round spot and one Spring-only spot for the 2014-15 school year. The application can be found on the Habiger Institute for Catholic Leadership website:  http://www.stthomas.edu/cathstudies/leadership/communities/default.html  The application should be delivered to Laura Stierman (Sitzmann Hall). Kristen Grant is the chaplain.
 
The rent for our fully-furnished houses is set by the University and is billed directly to your student account, per semester. It is a little less than a double room in Dowling. The rare this year was $2,798 per semester but we have not yet gotten the rate for the next year. No year-round lease is required: ‘move-in’ is in late-August/early-September and ‘move-out’ is late May after graduation. Included in the rent are most utilities (no internet service or a landline), a J-term option (no extra rent) and a parking permit. Contact Laura Stierman (ljstierman@stthomas.edu) with any further questions you may have.

EVENTS

Seven Visits Devotion on Holy Thursday (April 17)
 
Dr. and Mrs. Boyle are organizing and leading a version of the Seven Visits Devotion in the neighborhood of Sitzmann Hall this Holy Thursday evening, and would be delighted if you would join them. This devotion originates in Rome, but is practiced in many Catholic cultures around the world. After the Mass of the Lord's Supper, when the altar is stripped and the Blessed Sacrament is transferred to an altar of repose for adoration, the faithful visit Our Lord at seven churches (in theory, the seven Roman basilicas, but this seems nearly impossible without a helicopter...), keeping Him company and staying awake with Him in the Garden. Some of Catholic Studies community have been able to participate in this devotion in Rome.
 
Our version will begin with the Mass of the Lord's Supper at Nativity of Our Lord (Stanford and Prior) at 7:30 p.m. After Mass we will visit the Blessed Sacrament at Nativity, Our Lady of Victory Chapel at St. Kate's, St. Mark's, St. John Vianney, the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel at UST, and we will end at Albertus Magnus Chapel in Sitzmann Hall. (Yes, you counted correctly. We are only able to find 6 tabernacles within walking distance.) We plan to make this trip on foot, and the total distance is about 2.5 miles. Of course you are welcome to use alternate transportation, or make only some of the six visits. We will end the evening with light refreshments and fellowship at Sitzmann Hall.
 
The Mass of the Lord's Supper at Nativity does fill up, so arrive early for good seats!

OPEN WINDOW THEATRE PRESENTS LILIES OF THE FIELD, APRIL 25-MAY 25
Open Window Theatre invites your family and friends to see the heartwarming classic story, Lilies of the Field, which closes out our third season, April 25-May 25. The story is based on Homer Smith, who having decided to travel after being discharged from the army, heads Southwest to see where the spirit moves him. He encounters nuns working in the dusty fields and offers to help, staying on to assist with their projects, teaching the nuns English, driving them to and from Mass and, eventually, building them a chapel. Homer's selfless love and kindness towards the nuns does not go unrecognized despite the hardships encountered.  Will Homer finish the chapel and attend Mass in the place that he built? Will what he built create a legacy? Come and experience how faith can shape the successes and struggles of our lives into something much more than we could ever have imagined.

The family friendly Open Window Theatre is located just a few blocks from the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis with free parking.  Visitwww.openwindowtheatre.org for the performance schedule or call 800-838-3006 to order tickets.  Discounts available for students, seniors, and groups of 10 or more.  Recommended for ages 4+.
