In response to the religious diversity
of our campus, the Campus Ministry team has created a Faith
Connections Program that seeks to connect students with folks on our
campus who representative various spiritual traditions as well as connect you to a local place of worship in your tradition. The faculty
and staff that have volunteered to be part of this program are
available to students who are looking for information about ways to
observe their tradition in the Green Bay area, or who simply want to
talk to someone who shares their spiritual grounding. Please feel free
to contact any person listed for more information about your home
tradition. If you want the staff of Campus Ministry to help you
initiate contact with someone on this list, feel free to contact us at email@example.com
Life can be quite demanding and hectic and sometimes
it may seem that it would be a bit easier if we just had a guide book.
According to our Christian faith, we have such a tool that we call
scripture. We are called to participate in the life of the Word each
time we pray as a community, and in campus ministry, we would like to
provide an opportunity for you to also encounter scripture on your own
time by offering reflections on the readings we encounter in our
worship life. Here, you will find scripture reflections written by St. Norbert
College students, faculty and staff, alumni, board members and Norbertines.
A spiritual guide is a companion who will walk with you on your
journey. Whether you are facing a spiritual crisis or simply want to
know and follow God more closely, a spiritual guide can be a valuable
asset. If you are interested, contact Sandy Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or (920) 403-3925.
Prayer and contemplation are core aspects of Norbertine life. St.
Norbert of Xanten placed strong emphasis on prayer, study and
reflection as integral to his own process of life long conversion.
Norbert’s choice of The Rule of St. Augustine as the guide for his
followers reaffirms the centrality of prayer in all its forms to
Christian life. The Rule encourages community members to be zealous in
prayer, and mandates that an oratory be set apart as a place completely
dedicated to both communal and private prayer. Furthermore, St.
Augustine in his rule exhorts that when we pray, “ponder in your hearts
what your lips are saying.” In the Norbertine tradition, private prayer
and spiritual reading complement the Liturgy of the Hours and above all
the Eucharist as the deep sources of communio.
St. Norbert College is committed to providing spaces for prayer or
quiet reflection for members of the college community from any faith or
spiritual perspective. You will find these spaces vary – from formal
spaces conducive to group gatherings to quiet spots in which
individuals can catch their breath.
