Campus Ministry Students Join Bishop Senior for Holy Hour

With the start of the spring semester underway, students involved in campus ministry at colleges and universities throughout the Diocese took time out from their studies and social life to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Bishop Timothy Senior led the students in a Holy Hour at St. Patrick Cathedral on Saturday morning, January 27.

Sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, the annual event drew students and campus ministers from Shippensburg University, Gettysburg College, York College, Bucknell University, Messiah University, Susquehanna University and a local Penn State campus. Following the Holy Hour, the bishop joined the students for an informal luncheon, and answered their questions about his vocation, his role as a bishop and how to witness to the faith on campus.

We discover the presence of Jesus together as we accompany one another on the journey of life. Especially in your lives as college students, we need to encourage, accompany and listen to one another,” Bishop Senior said in his homily.

“Jesus is always willing to listen to us. He’s anxious to listen to us. He truly already knows what’s troubling us in our hearts, but He wants to hear it from us because He knows it’s good for us to unburden our hearts to Him,” the bishop said.
