"Jesus, through his boundless love for the world, suffered to the point of death for our sake. The power of this journey is that it does not end in death. I pray that all of us may find strength in times of sorrow, and that we may be transformed into a new life." - Dr. Diane Walsh
Dr. Walsh is an Assistant Professor and Acadmic Unit Leader of Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling

Holy Week Challenge
Holy Week is the week beginning with Palm Sunday and preceding Easter. In Christianity, is the most important and sacred week of the year. The last three days of the week, from the evening of Thursday to the evening of Saturday Holy are known as the Triduum.
Our challenge to you is to make these holy days prayerful and meaningful to you, at this difficult time when they are more important than ever:
Holy Thursday: The ultimate act of service, Jesus's washing of the Disciples' feet was performed on Holy Thursday. Can you give up some time in service on Holy Thursday? See service opportunities that are possible from your own home here.
Good Friday: On this somber day we commemorate Jesus's journey to Calvary and death on the Cross. The hours of 12:00PM-3:00PM are observed as the time of Jesus's death. In observation of the time of Jesus's death, can you spend these three hours away from technology?
Holy Saturday: Holy Saturday, the vigil of Jesus's resurrection, is sometimes called Joyous Saturday. Can you spend time doing something that makes you joyful this Saturday? Maybe joy for you means listening to a happy song, calling a good friend, or baking something. For inspiration, listen to Fr. Greg Boyle's thoughts about choosing joy!
Campus Ministry's Top Picks for this Week:
