Chaplain's Chatter: Thoughts, Reflections and Musings from the Catholic Chaplain
I was very glad to be back at our 7:00PM Mass this past Sunday night – I truly miss our liturgies during the summer months. If you are new to our Catholic Community - WELCOME! I pray that our campus parish can be a spiritual home for you during your time at Nazareth. I very much look forward to meeting you. For those of you returning, WELCOME BACK! Please know you were missed!
As we begin this new semester, now is the perfect time to take some steps that will help you later when the stress and workload of the semester piles up. Having regularly scheduled times throughout your week designated for prayer can help bring calm and balance during times of stress and busyness. Consider making our Sunday night 7:00PM Mass and our 12:30PM Mass on Wednesdays part of your weekly routine. Add these Mass times to your phone/computer/paper calendars to help you remember!
As a Eucharistic people, our celebration of the Mass provides us the spiritual nourishment that will carry us through the week! Take time to step out of the busyness of the semester, become more centered, reconnect with God and step back into the semester more focused. You will be glad you did! See you at Mass!

Eucharistic Adoration and Compline
THIS Thursday, September 3, 9:00PM to 10:00PM
Eucharistic Adoration is simply spending quiet time in the presence of Jesus. When Jesus was suffering His agony in the garden, He asked his apostles, “Could you not spend one hour with Me?” Jesus’ lamentation touches our hearts, and we respond, “We can.” Adoration is for anyone who wishes to come.
Compline is an evening prayer that settles the mind and heart and serves as a peaceful connection between one day or week and the next.
Any questions, please call Sr. Donna- 585-733-4422 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
