EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
LAST CALL: 2015-2016 Arrupe International Immersion Program
Arrupe can often be a very transformative experience for people, inviting us to "fall in love" with God, each other, and the world in a new way. We invite you to share in the experience. Spend a year in reflection with peers, building community, deepening faith, and growing in solidarity. Travel for 8 - 10 days over Winter Break to Belize, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico (Chiapas, Puebla, Morelos), or the U.S. Mexico border and learn more about the complex realities of one of these places. Attend one of our last info sessions this week to learn more: March 11 at 8PM (McGuinn 121) or March 12 at 6 PM (Stokes S195). Please check the Arrupe website for details about each trip and participant qualifications. Interested applicants must attend an information session.

Catholic Relief Services Project Rice Bowl
This Lent, we invite you to join with Catholic Relief Services to participate in the Lenten Rice Bowl program. This program aims to encourage almsgiving, reflection and prayer during Lent, as a way to deepen our friendship with God. The rice bowl itself is a little cardboard box where you can donate change (cash money!) as alms during Lent. The money collected will benefit the poor. In addition, there is a CRS Rice Bowl app which you can download then receive various Lenten prayers and reflections to accompany you on your Lenten journey. At the end of Lent, the Rice Bowls will be collected on April 16 in McElroy 115 between 10 AM - 4 PM. For more information, please call 617-552-1317 or email email@example.com.
Our collection this week and next week will benefit the mission of Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos (Our Little Brothers and Sisters). Founded in 1954 by Fr. William Wasson, a US missionary priest working in Mexico, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos nurtures orphaned and vulnerable children in a loving, stable, secure family environment. They keep brothers and sisters together and provide a quality education, health care, and spiritual formation NPH operates homes in Bolivia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru. Since 1954, 18,000 children have called NPH home and over 100,000 people yearly receive assistance through community service programs. Your donation will make a big difference in the lives of these children, please be generous! Thank You.
