We congratulate them on their achievement. We promise them our prayers for success in all the upcoming adventures of their lives. May God bless you!

Do you know someone who is heading off to college this fall? Would you like to help them connect with people of faith when they get there? A new website of the Catholic Campus Ministers of Wisconsin can help. At www.goingtocollege.org, your students coming to campus can sign up to receive information about campus ministry at their prospective Wisconsin schools, as well as an invitation to get involved. The college years can be an important time for faith development. Don’t miss out on the opportunities to meet great people and experience the prayer, service, and social events that campus ministry offers. If you know someone going to college, make sure they visit www.goingtocollege.org !
