SBU Francis Week Overnight at the Mountain

September 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - September 30, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Come join us for a Francis Week Overnight at the Mountain.  Join us as we explore our Francis Week theme of Care for Creation in a quiet, relaxing evening of good food, friends and fellowship.

If you’d like a ride, vans will leave Café LaVerna at 4 pm on Friday.  Since our workday is on Saturday, we ask that you consider staying and helping us for the day.  If you cannot, there will be a ride back to campus on Saturday morning at approximately 8:30 am.  If you’re driving yourself, please don’t use GPS, follow the directions you will find HERE on our website.

All you will need to bring is your personal items, but we highly suggest warm clothing and sturdy shoes because it is cold in the evenings in Western New York!  And if you can help with the workday, bring clothes that can get dirty.  Bring 2 sets of clothes and stay until after Mass and Brunch on Sunday if you want!  Ask Br. Kevin, Karen or Natalie about Saturday night accommodations.

If you’d like more information, please contact Br. Kevin at [email protected], Natalie at [email protected] or stop in University Ministries and see one of the Mountain Team Members.

We’d love to talk to you!  Do you have friends who are interested?  Encourage them to come with you, the more the better!

Make sure to sign up for BOTH this overnight AND the workday if you’re staying so that we can get a headcount for meals.
