Tommie Catholic: Bishop Cozzens Speaks

 
Tuesday February 21st  8-9 PM Woulfe Alumni Hall
Come listen to Bishop Cozzens speak about being on mission as a college student and how to reach out and love other students that are in their lives already.  This is an awesome opportunity to hear Bishop Cozzens speak - we can't wait to see you there!
 

Opportunities:

Centering Prayer

 According to Thomas Merton, "the best way to come to God is to go to your own center and pass through that center into the center of God." Centering Prayer is a means to experience God's presence within us, and as a prayer, it brings the depths of the contemplative experience long practiced within the Christian tradition to those who, in the midst of a busy life, long for that intimate relationship with the God. Everyone is welcome.

Every Thursday at 8:30am
Meditation Room, ASC 251
