Check out our Facebook page for more information about all of these and other events.

Café

Sunday Cafe

Every Sunday after the 7:30 pm Student Mass, consider yourself invited to the Café at the Catholic Campus Ministry Centre. Cafe will end with the Winter Semester on March 30th, 2014.

There is always homemade soup and great company. From time to time we have guest speakers or local musicians play, but for the most part, it is purely social and purely free!

After Mass just follow the crowd across the lawn and relax before the week gets started again.

Community Dinner

Community Dinners

Need a chance to relax? Want some food that doesn’t come out of a box? Join us Monday nights for a home-cooked meal and the opportunity to meet new people. Every month, the meals highlight foods of different cultures, so it is a great chance to meet new people and try new foods! Dinner usually features cuisine from a different part of the world cooked by students who know how to cook it.

It happens the last Monday of the month at 5:30 pm, beginning January 13th 2014 at the Campus Ministry Student Centre. The best part is the dinner is only two dollars! We ask that you RSVP on the Facebook Event.

Men & Women’s Fellowship

Men and Women's Fellowship

This is a time to share the word of God through prayer, discussion, fellowship and snacks! It’s always a welcoming atmosphere and comforting to know you have a group of brother and sisters of Christ who support you through the adventure of University.

Fellowship takes place at the Catholic Campus Ministry Student Centre on the last Monday of the month at 5:30 pm, beginning January 27th, 2014.

 Good News

Good News with Pope Francis

The term New Evangelization is growing in popularity, but what exactly is New Evangelization you ask? Essentially, it is sharing the Good News (the Gospels) in interesting and engaging ways…and we are doing it right here on Campus! If you are seeking, or you are interested in working with a Catholic organization in the future this evangelization team is for you!

We schedule meetings and events based on the team’s schedule, and you can join the team at any time. Stay tuned on Facebook for more information.

 Spiritual Run

Spiritual Run

Being a student is a fulltime job and along with every job comes moments of stress and exhaustion. In order for us to experience health within our bodies, minds, emotions and spirit we need to experience how all four are totally intertwined.

Start your day with Morning Prayer and Run every Tuesday at the Campus Ministry Student Centre. Please contact Thomas Dula for more information tdula@assumption.ca

 Speak Your Piece

Speak your piece

Do you enjoy food and lively discussion? Well then, join us for lunch and casual conversation about a variety of current events in the media. It starts with viewing a relevant issue in our society and then talking about it over a slice of pizza. The previous year we looked at technology, forgiveness, mental health, and many other hot topics picked by students.

It happens every other Wednesday, beginning January 15th, 2014 at the Campus Ministry Student Centre.

Truth & Charity

Apologetics and Critical Thinking

Have you ever been interested in knowing more about your faith, really understanding the science of the Catholic faith and being able to boldly explain it? Come and take part in discussion and debate of Catholic Apologetics. If you feel at all intimidated by such heavy/critical thinking, do not worry, we will be serving nachos and salsa…food for the brain….supposedly.

Join us every other Wednesday at 12:00 pm in the Catholic Campus Ministry Centre, beginning January 22nd, 2014.

Dance

Dance in the Assumption Univeristy Chapel

Do you feel compelled to learn a new form of dance and would you confidently like to know how to dance Salsa, Swing, Waltz, etc. Well then come join us every Wednesday in the Catholic Campus Ministry Student Centre for Dance Class, or what we like to call “Wedding Dance Boot Camp”.

We learn a new dance each month, starting January 15th at 6 pm 2014 and the cost is $10 a month.

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap

Want to discuss faith and justice topics relevant to your life? Want to meet other young adults who share these interests? Please join us Thursday January 17th, February 27th, and March 20th, 2014 of informal theological discussions and presentations in a comfortable and relaxed setting at Dominion House Pub on Sandwich Street.

Stay tuned on our Facebook page for upcoming speakers and topics.

Threads of Prayer

Threads of Prayer

If you have ever been to our lounge, you will not be surprised to discover that some students started taking study breaks and knitting.  It wasn’t long before more started to join in and it quickly turned into a knitting and prayer group.

The parish gives these students the names of people and what they would like made.  As they knit they pray for the individual.  When they are done, the person is presented with their gift of comfort.

Every Monday at 1:30 pm, starting January 13th, 2014.

Retreats

Silent Retreat “At The Benedictine Monastery”

Silent Retreat at the Monastery

We know this sounds rather crazy, but it is an amazing experience! Environment is everything for a silent retreat, so we head north for about an hour to a Benedictine Monastery. The accommodations are amazing and the grounds are lovely. We take part in their prayer schedule throughout the day, which is incredible.

This will be our third year attending and we will be away from December 18th to the 20th, 2013. All in all, it is the best way to transition from the frantic pace of exams to the beauty and celebration of Christmas.

Please contact Thomas Dula for more details, tdula@www.assumptionu.ca

Busy Student Retreat

Busy student retreat

Let’s face it, were all busy. So how do we make time for our relationship with God to be nourished? Well, one way is signing up for the Busy Student Retreat! That’s right, a retreat designed for the busy student, during Lent. This is a first for Campus Ministry, where we invite several priests, brothers, and sisters to join us for a week and provide one on one spiritual direction. Mass, confession, and individual/community prayer is also a component of the retreat, but revolves around YOUR school schedule.

The retreat will run from March 17th to March 20th and you will be able to meet with a spiritual director anytime between 11 am to 3 pm. Our opening ceremony will take place in the Campus Ministry Student Centre on March 17th at 10 am, and the closing will occur on March 20th at 3 pm. Another reason to take part in the retreat is that it’s no cost to you, just 1 hour of your time during the week.

If you would like more details or register for the retreat, please contact Thomas Dula at tdula@www.assumptionu.ca

Journey with Kateri “Pilgrimage to Quebec”

Journey With Kateri

Take a journey with our first Canadian Native Saint, Kateri Tekakwitha. In view of the fact that Kateri is the patroness of the environment and ecology, we plan to host this pilgrimage in the woodlands of Quebec, Canada. The purpose of the pilgrimage is to find stillness in ones life in order to reconnect with themselves and God through nature, prayer, and the Eucharist. The main focus will be to learn the story of St. Kateri Tekakwitha and how her life can model holiness and a personal relationship with Christ. It will also give students the opportunity to learn of the historic Catholic development in one of Canada’s oldest cities. The retreat will take place from June 21 to the 28th and the cost will be approximately $200 a student. This includes transportation, accommodation, food, and all excursions.

If you would like more details or register for the pilgrimage please contact Thomas Dula at tdula@assumption.ca
