STARR students create service family at Marian

This has been a stellar semester for our STARR service program. Not only have some 86 students served 800 hours in the Indianapolis community, but bonds have been made amongst students! The study break hosted by Campus Ministry last Friday was evidence of the STARR "family," which has formed throughout the semester. Students gathered to help a fellow student make yarn bracelets for chlidren in Haiti while enjoying Christmas music and holiday treats. There were not enough seats to hold all the students who came to share in the spirit of giving and being! I am grateful to be a part of this amazing energy and spirit of love and service. It gives me hope for our world to experience students who are willing to give their time in order to serve others and to be open to their own transformation!! Come and check out this awesome opportunity next semester! The doors are open to all!! Peace and happy new year!

Saints Who Served: Part 2

Blessed Miguel Pro

Born on January 13, 1891 in Guadalupe, Mexico, Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez was the eldest son of Miguel Pro and Josefa Juarez.
Miguelito, as his doting family called him, was, from an early age, intensely spiritual and equally intense in hi mischievousness, frequently exasperating his family with his humor and practical jokes. As a child, he had a daring precociouness that sometimes went too far, tossing him into near-death accidents and illnesses. On regaining consciousness after one of these episodes, young Miguel opened his eyes and blurted out to his frantic parents, "I want some cocol" (a colloquial term for his favorite sweet bread). "Cocol" became his nickname, which he would later adopt as a code name during this clandestine ministry.

Opportunity for Charity

Hello! Hope everyone's semesters are ending well!

If you are like me and you still have some Knight Bucks left, but you don't want to waste them, then I'd love to encourage you to donate them to the Cathedral Pantry/Kitchen downtown. It is really easy to donate, and the donations will provide a lot of food and product for the Cathedral pantry to help them provide for the economically underpriveledged during the cold, winter months. The Cathedral Kitchen has at least one free meal every day of the year and our donations will help them to continue doing their amazing work! Even if you only have $5 left it can still make a lasting impact when combined with other donations. If 40 people gave $5 in Knight Bucks, that would be an amazing $200 in food/product!

If you are interested in donating, please just email me, Jeff Stegbauer, your name at by MONDAY, the 12TH of DECEMBER.

Then, I will forward your name onto Shannon Smith, who will then drain your account (**If you do not want your account drained entirely please include the specific ammount you want to donate in your email**) at the end of the semester and use the collected money to go out and purchase goods to bring down to the Cathedral Pantry. So, to ensure that your Knight Bucks don't go to waste, all you have to do is email me your name!

Thanks and God Bless! My prayers are with all of you as you study for your finals and write all those papers!
