Calling all breakfast lovers! Come join us for Breakfast Club every morning (M – Fr) at 9 am in person in front of the Career Center next to A.D. Bruce and the square fountain or virtually via Google Meet!
What is Breakfast Club, you ask?
It’s a group of Christ-seeking friends that cast their petitions and worries at the feet of the Father through Our Lady’s intercession by praying the rosary and then getting breakfast at Cougar Woods! We pray for Claire, Claudia, Father Charlie, and all CSO intentions posted on this chat. Please let us know how we can pray for you!

We pray for an end to this pandemic and healing to those who are suffering physically, emotionally, and financially due to the pandemic. May they find peace and hope in Jesus Christ. We pray for the souls of all those who have died due to the Coronavirus and the consolation of their loved ones.

For our seven students in small group evangelization formation this semester. May God guide, bless, and draw them near during their formation and prayer times.
