Dear Friend of St. Isidore's,

  

I can't believe we are on the doorstep of Lent 2014, the season of sacrificial grace and an experience of God's love through a participation in the simplicity of Jesus' 40 days in the desert.  What are you looking for this Lent?  In what ways will you participate with God's grace to achieve those goals?

 

We look forward to many of the K-State students committing to improving their relationship with Christ through reconciliation, Mass, stations of the cross, small group bible studies and a host of other spiritual prayer opportunities and events this Lent.  How will you make a new commitment this Lent?

 

As was mentioned last month we have begun a new website and part of that website is a recently added Discussion Forum.  Visit our discussion forum (under the sacraments and formation menu or click here) and simply register with an e-mail address to participate in a couple of Discussions that are already underway or to start your own... "Memories of St. Isidore's" and "Lent Do's & Don'ts."  This is yet another way of connecting our St. Isidore's Family and helping one another grow in love and relationship with Jesus Christ and each other.  

 

Thank you for all your continued prayer and support.  May God richly bless your Lent 2014 and beyond.

 

Blessings,

  

Fr. Jarett Konrade

 

 
 
 
 
 
Volunteer Appreciation Dinner
 
  
 
Blessed. That is what we are here at St. Isidore's, truly blessed. We could not have such an active and faith-filled center without the help and support of the many volunteers who give their time and talent day after day.  
 
Once a year the St. Isidore's staff host a dinner to show our appreciation for all of the many volunteers that give their time throughout the year.  After the plates had been filled and tummies were full, Fr. Jarett performed a few songs that he had prepared and shared with the group.  A good time was had by all. 
 
 
 
 

 

KCCSC

 

  

The theme for this years KCCSC weekend was "Catching Fire for Christ" and that is just what these students did.  This year the event was held in Topeka, KS at the Capital Plaza Hotel. 

 

During the convention the students listened to a talk from keynote speaker Archbishop Naumann, participated in  several break-out sessions and attended a formal dinner and dance one evening. 

 

St. Isidore's will be hosting the 2015 KCCSC convention here in Manhattan, KS. The students have already started to work on plans for next year's convention and are excited to host such a wonderful weekend.

Dear Friend of St. Isidore's,

  

We are well underway in the spring semester 2014 and I can't believe its almost February.  Some updates from around St. Isidore's...  We are excited about launching a revamped website, striving not to get too far behind the college students with media, social outlets and technology.  

 

Some of the classes/book studies coming up this semester are "Theology of the Body," "The Creed," and Matthew Kelly's "Rediscover Catholicism."  We are excited to have 41 planning to experience the Easter Sacraments through RCIA and over 30 couples coming through the marriage prep process.

 

As always, life at St. Isidore's keeps us on our toes, and the students keep us energized and often entertained.  As we have made it through another phonathon and approach our annual campaign, I am constantly reminded of how all that we do in ministry for the students of K-State comes by way of your generosity.  Thanks so much, and may God richly bless your 2014.  

 

Blessings,

  

Fr. Jarett Konrade

March for Life

   

On January 22, 2014, twenty-eight students from St. Isidore's marched the streets in Washington, DC to support the right for life.  After the 20 hour bus ride, the students were happy to get out and stretch their legs even in the mid teen's climate for such an important cause.  In addition to the rally, many students took the opportunity to go and visit the National Basilica, Arlington Cemetery and other museums and landmarks.

 

Nicholas Downey, a senior in Construction Science and Management, also enjoyed seeing a group of K-State grads who are now seminarians at the March for Life rally.  He also expressed how excited he is to go again next year and encourages any K-State student or recent grad to join the St. Isidore's group for the trip in 2015!
