Join us for Restless Heart, a movie based on the Confessions of St. Augustine! Restless Heart uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of Augustine of Hippo -- one of the Catholic Church's most beloved and well-known Saints. Its message is as timely today as it was only a few generations after Jesus walked on Earth. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass -- and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. Free and open to the public (no ticket required). View the trailer at http://www.restlessheartfilm.com/.
Sponsored by Campus Ministry, Catholic Studies, and The St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity.

On the fortieth anniversary of Roe V. Wade

In the spring semester of 2012 Campus Ministry decided to offer a 9 a.m. Mass time on a trial basis. It has now been decided to discontinue the 9 a.m. Mass time and continue with the 11 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. Masses. This change will be effective beginning spring semester 2013.
Our goal is to promote a sense of community, belonging, and fullness at our 11 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. Masses. This is one reason why the Church asks Catholics to come to Mass each and every Sunday. Your presence with us on campus at our two main Sunday liturgies makes a difference! Please plan to join us and encourage roommates, friends, and colleagues to do the same. Thank you for your understanding as we seek to use our resources wisely and promote good liturgy and community on campus.
This will be the last e-News of this semester. May the rest of your Advent be abundantly blessed and may you experience the joy and peace of the Christ Child this Christmas!
