Kim Brown, Associate Vocation Director of the Diocese of Fort Worth (beginning tomorrow!) and Founder of the Kingdom of God Sisters, came to visit us last night at our TWU Mass & Meal. She spoke to us about the importance of Jesus’ Mercy and how we can live it out in our lives. Take a look at some photos below!

This Week at TWU!

Welcome Back Pioneer Catholics! 

We have great things coming your way this semester! Happy New Year!

If this is your first semester at Texas Woman’s University, we welcome you and can’t wait to meet you! I’d really like to get the semester rolling strong, so below I’ve listed some weekly activities that I hope you’ll be interested in.

First, I’d like to introduce myself. If you don’t already know me, my name is Jacqueline Burkepile and I am your campus minister. I’m 27 years old, married, and I have a one-year old little boy. I love the Eucharist, the Rosary, and Daily Mass! My favorite foods are chocolate, yeast rolls from the Golden Chick, and cookie cakes! Yes, I have a sweet tooth. 😉

I’m also a writer and singer. I love theater too, and I’m learning to play the guitar! If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m always here for you! Just contact me at, and we can set up a time to chat on the phone or in person.

So now that you know a little bit about me, I hope to learn more about you as the semester progresses. Don’t be shy! I want to get to know you 🙂

Next, if you would like to sign up for any type of ministry, please click this link to access the ministry form. This form will allow you to sign up for what interests you, such as Mass ministries, service, etc.

We also have a retreat coming up in April! If you’d like to staff this retreat, please click this link to apply. You don’t have to have already attended, because this is our very first one! 🙂
