Catholic Campus Ministry

Growing up with the last name “Praught” it seemed like I was never blessed with the ease of syllabus day that the “Smiths” and “Joneses” I knew had. People mispronounced our last name so often that my family created a little slogan to help others remember – “it’s ‘Praught’ like ‘taught,’ just replace the ’t’,” we say.

It was a warm and sunny day in the middle of January. The weather felt out of place, but was welcomed. People from all walks of life traveled far and wide to gather in downtown D.C. As soon as they stepped out of the Smithsonian Metro Station, they were greeted by smiling faces handing out bright green signs saying “Choose love. Choose life” and inviting them to join the crowd that was rapidly amassing.

Social media and technology are great tools for advertising and sharing news. There are many advantages to technology and social media, however, it seems as though technology could be affecting our ability to have and build authentic friendships.

If you were on campus Monday night around 9 p.m., you most likely witnessed a procession of students and religious clerics coming from the direction of Jefferson Davis Highway. With them came traditional Catholic hymns such as “Ecclesia Dei,” and pamphlets detailing the Catholic Campus Ministries’ activities at Ball Circle for the evening.
