Chaplain's Chatter: Thoughts, Reflections and Musings from the Catholic Chaplain
At the end of Mass this past Sunday, Fr. Bob invited each of us to "discover the person deep inside you this Advent." Advent offers us the opportunity to journey inward, to discover more fully the person God created us to discover. It is a time to listen to the voice of God that speaks to us deep within our hearts. We journey inward so we can live outward lives of genuineness, freedom and lasting joy.
Pope Francis said that "[the Advent] journey never comes to an end. Just as in each of our lives we always need to begin again, to get up again, to rediscover the meaning of the goal of our lives, so also for the great human family it is always necessary to rediscover the common horizon toward which we are journeying. The horizon of hope!"
As we head into the busyness and stress of finals week, I pray the hope of Advent will give you assurance, comfort and direction.
The Sisters of St. Joseph have invited you to their home for a snack as your prepare for your finals!
Please come for some physical and spiritual nourishment! All are Welcome!

Clairvaux Service Retreat
You are invited to spend your spring break with fellow Naz students along with children and families who have been affected by homelessness. We will take the week to work with Deep Roots and the people they serve as we learn more about poverty and homelessness and the ways in which we can make a true difference. If you are looking for an opportunity to serve and to explore the intersection of spirituality and social justice, then we hope you will consider joining us in March!
"Deep Roots works with children and their families, who are disconnected through homelessness or other similar marginalization: connecting hearts. Our program will challenge children to envision a brighter future, to sustain healthy relationships and to navigate a course towards personal and social responsibility through better life experiences, with mentors, providing healthy life-models for all future relationships."
