Catholicism has a rich intellectual tradition. Bishop Robert Barron provides short videos and documentaries that taps into that tradition to challenge us to grow not just spiritually, but also intellectually. Sign up at out Flocknote account and receive daily videos in your email. In addition you will have access to his award winning Catholicism and Pivotal Players series. Sign up at 

Sunday Readings for Mass - Make a commitment to reading the Sunday readings before you go to Mass. In the same way that reading up on football players, opposing teams, and coaching strategies will help you experience a game more fully, familiarizing yourself with the readings ahead of time can allow you to experience them in a deeper way on Sunday. Don’t have time to read all three readings? Then just read the Gospel. (Find the Sunday readings here.)

Busy Persons Retreat - Each semester the Busy Person’s Retreat (BPR) takes place on campus and it’s for exactly who it sounds like--busy people like you and me! Busy Persons Retreat runs from March 4-8, 2018. BPR occurs over the course of five days on campus.  What makes BPR unique is that the retreat schedule depends on  your schedule.  Each retreatant commits 30 minutes of personal prayer (we'll give you a guide to follow) and 30 minutes meeting with a spiritual director at least twice during the five days. It’s a great way to learn to pray within your busy lives. A spiritual director is someone who listens to your faith story and someone who guides you through reflection and prayer.
