Please join us in offering prayers for the 54 students and their leaders as the November Kairos retreat begins this afternoon!
The Jesuit's have identified the work of reconciliation as one of their major priorities in recent years, and here we see our students doing that work, striving to be nearer to the truth in humility, struggling with the realities of sin in our own history, and so also opening a door to healing and reconciliation with one another today.

Gonzaga Men Work at the Center
Today marks the beginning of the 2nd week of Eagles living and working at the Father McKenna Center. We have twelve students and 2 faculty working in the Center this week. The photo shows Cortez McDaniel speaking with them about our work and how they can engage with the men we serve during their stay.

ADVENT MEDITATION: THE JOYFUL MYSTERIES OF THE ROSARY
WITH REFLECTIONS ON REFUGEES
By meditating on the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, we accompany Mary and Joseph as they learn that Mary will bring the Son of God into the world, and we journey with them through Christ’s birth and into his childhood. These reflections on each of the Joyful Mysteries include a story of refugees today in the Middle East, where the Holy Family was from. We reflect on the experience of the Holy Family through the stories of these refugees. Along with your personal intentions, please offer the Rosary for the safety of refugee families around the world, and for an end to the conflict and conditions that force people to flee their homes. Click on each of the audio files below to listen to and pray along with each decade of the rosary.
crs.org These reflections for Advent on each of the Joyful Mysteries include a story of refugees today in the Middle East, where the Holy Family was from.
Happy Feast of St. Nicholas! Again this year, Campus Ministry celebrated the feast by distributing candy canes during the lunch periods today!
St. Nicholas's story is a memorable and rich one. Some families today still give out the small chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil as a tribute to his charitable work. History indicates that the saint may have been sparing daughters of poor families from being sold into slavery by bringing them the money necessary for a dowry.
Whatever the case may be, he remains a symbol of generosity and the surprise gift. We can all celebrate that joyful witness this Advent!
Three spots are available for sophomore servers on McKenna's Wagon this week!
We volunteer with the McKenna’s Wagon program, going out as a group to serve both hot and cold meals. We make the service more than a bread line through kind, friendly welcoming service. Those who dine with the Wagon are frequently homeless. No one who seeks food is turned away. While the majority of clients express great gratitude, some arrive at this point in the day having faced considerable hardship before getting there. We meet at the Campus Ministry lounge.
