“Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
These words of St. Paul are speaking of something greater at work at all times: the love of God. As we are being asked during our Lenten journey to give up even more in the way of social interaction, going out of our homes, and limiting our activities at a time of fear and concern this Lenten journey is getting really difficult. The unknown is something with which we all are dealing everyday and every moment. We are traveling in a desert that might be even more parched than we expected. What do we lean on at times like these. Hope in Christ. Action through the holy Spirit. Slowing down. Prayer. Faith that what we are doing, staying home washing our hands, taking precautions and being careful will help in the long run.
Oakland University has gone to online classes for the rest of the semester. St. John Fisher Chapel has cancelled worship services. However the Chapel is open for private prayer.
In the meantime we are doing what we can to continue on with small groups, prayer, one-on-ones and Catholic Campus Ministry meetings on Thursday.
We are getting creative and we will be here for you. Despite the pandemic and the news of the spread in the United States the team will continue to be here, in prayer, supporting, listening and being community. Please encourage each other continue to stay connected as we go into this unknown together.
We will be doing online meetings for small groups and our Thursday meeting.
