A Good Day at Campus Ministry

A letter from our Campus Minister Mr. Gendron,

I would like to share with you the wonderful expierence our students had today with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. As in the past, our Catholic Studies students were called down to the chapel for a brief prayer service and then invited to stay for the Sacrament. With us today was Fr. Moe (our priest chaplain) and Fr. Lujbo from St. Francis. 

Today, we had six classes visit from 9am - 2:30pm. I am pleased to tell you that about 40 per cent of the students in each class participated in the Sacrament. These students expressed gratitude not only to me and their classroom teacher, but also to the priest. 

In addition the students who chose not to participate, instead joined together in a very faith-filled and inspirational discussion on forgiveness and healing. We also had a few staff and students who took the opportunity to share in the sacrament over the lunch period. I actually could have used additional priests. Today was a very good day here in Campus Ministry.
