Partners’ College Ministry is growing! A total of 6,500 college students used The Word Among Us during Advent 2014, and their response has been heartwarming.
Because of your generosity, our newest ministry is reaching the next generation of Catholics. Both students and campus chaplains have responded with gratitude to the gift of The Word Among Us. Here are just a few of their comments:
• “It is not easy to find a daily reading resource for college men and women. The Word Among Us was well received and appreciated by our students, who said that it assisted them in preparation for Mass. There wasn’t one copy left at the exits of our chapel! Thank you for this very practical resource of evangelization.” —Fr. Jude D’Angelo, OFM Conv., Chaplain, Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.
• “I’ve always had trouble reading Scripture. I didn’t get anything out of it. But it was different this time. The Word Among Us gave me a new ‘tool’ in my prayer life.” —Student, Texas A&M
• “The Word Among Us was extremely helpful! I loved having the Mass readings and prayers.” —Student, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio
• “The Word Among Us was a great means of spiritual growth for me. It was easy to use, helped me focus on a particular message for each day, and gave me questions to apply to my life.” —Student, Benedictine College, Kansas
At press time, more than 7,500 college students on 140 campuses will receive The Word Among Us during Lent.
