Be a Warrior for Christ

Happy Sunday, Pioneers!

How is your semester going so far? I hope well!

I know that you have the challenges of balancing school, relationships, and possibly a job. Sometimes it may seem like the whole world is tumbling down, but years from now, you will remember this precious time and actually wish you could be where you are now once again. Cherish this time, because it goes by so fast. This state in your life can be extremely difficult, but know that it is passing, and you will get through it. Just do your best, and God will take care of the rest.

If you ever need to talk, or need a shoulder to lean on, know that I am here for you! Please email me at twucatholic@gmail.com and we can set up a time to talk. I know college can be full of challenges and I would like to help you in any way I can. 

Below, I’ve posted incredible meditation from actor Jim Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in The Passion of the Christ. He provides encouragement for living in this world of indifference. Check it out! You will NOT be disappointed!

Also, we are in GREAT need of cantors and musicians for our 5:30 Wednesday & Sunday Masses! If you have music talent and would like to serve, please fill out the form below and we will contact you!

Let Us Pray For The Unborn

Hello TWU Catholics!

I hope you all had a wonderful first week of school. Don’t forget that tonight is the first night of Catholic Women’s Group! See the flyer below. 

Today is also the 45th Anniversary of the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, which made abortion legal in our country. According to statistics, from 1973-2014, there were almost 60 million abortions performed since its legalization in the United States. That’s 60 million babies. These people could have been your friends, classmates, future priests or religious. (This is just few examples to put this into perspective)

Let us pray for all the unborn, for those who have lost their lives to abortion, and for an end to abortion in our country.

Here is one college student’s stance on why she is pro-life:

10 Reasons Why I’m Pro-Life

And here is a video you may find helpful on campus:
