Welcome Back and DCCM Updates Week of 8/16/20

Friday, August 14, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, 

Welcome to everyone who is returning to Dickinson College this week, whether your return is in-person or virtual. The events of the last few months, which we are aware of from our social media feeds and news reports, have been unexpected and have led to many challenges in our lives. These challenging times have led us to seek God in different ways, and it has been no different for our campus ministry as we have not been able to have Mass or any other sort of gathering on campus.  

As highlighted in our letter from August 5 (See the letter here: http://blogs.dickinson.edu/dccm/2020/08/05/dickinson-catholic-campus-ministry-updates-august-5-2020/), we have placed a special emphasis on seeking God through virtual community and prayer. As we look ahead to the coming week, there are two more opportunities to encounter God through virtual community and prayer: 

-First Mass of the Semester, Sunday August 16 at 7:00 P.M. 

-Friday Fellowship, Friday, August 21 at 8:00 P.M.  

The first Mass will be a great opportunity to catch up with returning Catholic Campus Ministry students and meet many of our new students while praying for God’s blessings upon our semester. Friday Fellowship is a new initiative to unite in prayer and fellowship with Catholic Campus Ministries from the Diocese of Harrisburg. This week, we will have praise and worship from Shippensburg University’s Catholic Campus Ministry followed by a virtual social time. See the fliers below for more information. 

As we head into the next few weeks, we look forward to highlighting more of our events for the semester as we continue to seek God through virtual community and prayer. If there are any questions, please email us at newmanc@dickinson.edu, and please continue to keep our campus ministry in prayer. 

Pax et bonum, 

Dickinson Catholic Campus Ministry – DCCM
