Following our meeting last week, we had agreed to post the various links on the Campus Ministry ideas and topics.
The plan is to divide and conquer by having each of you choose ONE of the following as the committee you want to be involved with. Once I get your emails I will post the names of those in each group so you know who to connect with next week (Jan 31st)
EMAIL TO THE SCHOOL STAFF DIRECTORY
THE PLAN IS TO LAUNCH AT LEAST TWO INITIATIVES THE FIRST WEEK OF THE 2ND SEMESTER AND TO GET PROMO INFO OUT ABOUT THE OTHER IDEAS ASAP
Please sign up for the topic you are interested in being involved with:
1) SHARE LENT CAMPAIGN – HUMAN DIGNITY

3) FAIR TRADE – If you want to look at Fair Trade in our schools, download the attached package and sign up for this committee. This would be something we would need to connect with some of our sister Catholic schools about.

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
We are privileged to live in such a safe, clean, educated and wealthy society. Our responsibility is to use our vantage point to help others less fortunate than ourselves. The students at St. John Brebeuf are encouraged to make a difference in the world; to seek out causes that they are passionate about and are proud to stand behind.
Knowing and understanding real global issues helps our students to be compassionate and to see beyond themselves to the greater good of our world.
Our Campus Ministry is a group of dedicated and motivated students who aren’t content with sitting on the sidelines. This is no ordinary club, we encourage student to join a group that really makes a difference!
