Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to welcome all new students to Fort Hays State University and our Catholic Campus Center! If you are a returning student, alumni, parent, relative or just a friend of the university thank you for your support and prayers over the years. I have decided to write this to update all of our family on exciting news and changes coming to Catholic Disciples and the Campus Center.
The theme for this year is “Do You Love Me?” Since college is such a volatile time for the faith of young people, I thought this was a pertinent theme. This question asked by our Lord speaks to the very depth of who we are. He does not ask what we do or want to be, but asks us to enter into relationship with him. My prayer is that you reflect on this question throughout the year and come to know Him personally.
As many of you know, one of the greatest challenges and blessings over the past couple years is the explosive growth of Catholic Disciples. This brings communicative, financial, and other challenges. After much prayer and thought, the Catholic Disciples leadership team has decided to create a website. This site is intended to be a place of spiritual learning, growth, and community for all people. Our websites domain is www.catholictigers.org. I hope that you come to visit this site often for resources of all types, and that you share any content published on it. This is just one solution for us to continue to grow for years to come.
Finally, I ask that you pray for Catholic Disciples and myself. May our work continually bring Christ into a world that desperately needs it. Know that I am praying for you and your family, and I hope to see you soon. See you in the Eucharist!
In Him with love,
