Good morning everyone. On Friday March 4 beginning at 5p.m. we prayed alongside Newman Centre and Ryerson in a walking pilgrimage of the stations of the cross. We began with the Holy Doors of St. Paul’s Basilica and made our way across downtown Toronto making stops along the way to Ryerson, St. Michael’s College and Newman.
What a witness of faith. over 60 students attended the pilgrimage and it highlighted the unique ministries of each campus and their student body. It brought us together in prayer and the social afterwards on a late Friday evening during the season of Lent was a great witness to the vibrant community that makes up campus ministry at Newman, Ryerson and St. Mike’s.
Moving forward, my hope is that we can continue to come together and pray as neighboring ministries during the seasons of Lent and Advent to celebrate and mark the solemnities of our faith. Certainly, the opportunity to do so was captured and for this I am extremely grateful and proud of all students. A huge thank you to everyone who participated, and may God continue to bless each and every one of you, this Lenten season and beyond.
Director of Campus Ministry
