Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

101317 hpuHIGH POINT — High Point University’s Catholic Campus Ministry had Family Weekend Mass Sept. 24 to conclude Family Weekend festivities.

The weekend before, students heard the unfortunate news that Oblates of St. Francis de Sales Father Vincent Smith, campus minister and pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in High Point, was being transferred to Maryland.

Father Marcel Amadi (campus minister for Bennett College, North Carolina A&T, Salem College and Wake Forest University) was gracious enough to come to the campus to celebrate Mass for the students and their visiting families and friends.

The Mass was well attended as the university chapel was filled to capacity. In his homily, Father Amadi encouraged the faithful not to look down on anyone or think they are better than others, and instead to show gratitude to God for His blessings and to dedicate at least 15 minutes of each day to praying or talking with God.
