Sunday Mass – 5pm
As always, join us this Sunday at 5pm in the Tabler Black Box on the upper level of the Tabler Arts Center. We will be commissioning new liturgical ministers, lectors, eucharistic ministers, alter servers, sacristans, and members of the music ministry. during this mass.
Join us after mass for our “First” Sunday Social as a way of celebrating with our new members and rejoicing in the gift they give to our community.
Newman Club – Monday 10/2 at 7pm
Join us in the Melville Library Room N5560. We will be joined by the Rosary Makers of St James Church in Setauket, who will teach us how to make rosary beads. All materials will be provided and by the end of the meeting, you’ll be able to take home your handmade rosary beads, along with instructions on how to pray with them. October is considered the Month of the Holy Rosary, so what more appropriate way to spend our Newman meeting! We look forward to seeing you there!
Help Island Harvest’s Hurricane Relief Efforts!!
As part of our campus’ hurricane relief efforts, a collection box is located in the interfaith Center, on the fifth floor of the Melville Library — right outside of the CCM offices! The University is partnering with the Medical School and Island Harvest, a food bank which will take care of transportation of supplies gathered.
Island Harvest has some very strict guidelines about what can and cannot be donated:Most Needed Items:
- Pop-top ready to eat items
- Baby cereals and baby foods in plastic containers
- Shelf-stable/canned items such as peanut butter, tuna, chicken, beans, and soup (no glass containers)
- Dried fruit, oatmeal, cereals, granola bars, rice, and pasta
- Bottled water
- Cleaning supplies such as bleach, non-bleach cleaners, and paper towels
- Personal hygiene products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, and deodorant
Please help our brothers and sisters suffering from these recent hurricanes. If everyone on campus donated just one small item, we could fill several trucks! The collection box will be outside our office until October 10th.
#TBT – Room Blessings
Our annual room blessings this month brought us to Chapin, Tabler, H Quad, Mendelsohn, Toll, Kelly, Roosevelt, and West! Thank you for welcoming CCM (and Jesus) into your homes!
Lord, surround this room with Your Holy Spirit and be with all who will live here this year. Bless their studies with Your Spirit of Wisdom. Be their shelter when they are at home and walk with them when they are away.
May we welcome every guest with respect and kindness and may our door stand open to those who are in need. May friends who come to us in times of trouble and sorrow find here a place of comfort and peace.
May the spirit of prayer be a frequent guest and welcome roommate. May the spirit of praise guide every task or deed performed here. May all our comings and goings be under the seal of God’s loving care.
