Campus Ministry invites you to join us in serving our community and striving for social justice. We all have different gifts to offer.
Are you interested in praying with the scriptures once a week for an hour? Come explore and reflect upon the Gospel, using the ancient prayer form of Lectio Divina - spending time with the Word of God. We gather in STM Room 158 (just off the STM Student Lounge):
For more information, contact: Michael MacLean.
Volunteer at Mass
The Sunday Eucharist is central to the life of the worshipping community at St. Thomas More College. We have many opportunities for individuals who feel called to use their gifts in ministry during our liturgies:
- Lectors (Readers) are called forth from the community to proclaim the word of God. As a lector, your ministry calls you to help the community recognize God present in the Liturgy of the Word at Sunday Mass and/or daily liturgies each week. A good speaking voice, an ability to read in public, and a willingness are necessary for this ministry. Formation and training in the fall and on an individual basis.
- Music Ministers (Choir Members) help to lead the community in song with their voices and/or instruments. Contact Campus Ministry for more information.
Campus Ministry works directly with the Newman Centre, the Catholic club on campus that has been at the University of Saskatchewan since 1926, predating St. Thomas More College by ten years! Newman invites members from all colleges, and all backgrounds (no, you don’t have to be Catholic to join), to offer community building activities like the Annual Newman Retreat in January, Coffee Houses, TED talks, colouring contests in the Newman Student Lounge, and events after 5:00 pm Sunday mass!
For more information, contact Michael MacLean, the Campus Ministry liaison with the Newman Centre.
Development & Peace Just Youth
Do you believe that when the enormous wealth of the world is held by a precious few, and 2 billion people in the world lack access to fresh water and sanitation, that there is something radically wrong? Want to do something about it? Join the Development and Peace Just Youth Group on campus.
One of our aims is to mentor students as they integrate their learning with their faith and make sense of the world. Spiritual mentoring essentially involves one person walking alongside another as a companion on the journey of faith to help them answer the questions: "Who is God?", "Who am I in Christ?", and "To what has God called me as I live out my life." The campus ministers at St. Thomas More College are always happy to accompany you on your journey of faith. For more information, please contact Campus Ministry.
Busy Person's Retreat
This campus retreat for busy students is an on-campus, guided-prayer retreat made within the daily activities of the lives of students (and faculty and staff). The style and method is that of a directed retreat, in which each retreatant meets daily with a director who guides their reading of scripture and their personal prayer. Beginning on a Monday afternoon and ending on a Friday, retreatants commit themselves to one hour per day, which includes 30 minutes of prayer and reflection with selected Scripture readings and 30 minutes for meeting with a retreat director. Join our facebook page or watch our bulletin board for updates.
For more information, please contact Fr. Andre Lalach.
