Faith Development Spotlight: Off the Beaten Path

Every Monday, 5 pm
SCMC 2nd Floor

Off the Beaten Path was started by Spiritan Campus Ministry and a group of students who wanted to talk about things that mattered to their lives as college students, but didn't want to add more to their busy schedules.  The group decided that dinnertime was the best time to meet for their discussions, and the tradition continues!  This year we will discuss topics of faith, culture and current events from the popular website Busted Halo.  We meet every Monday at 5 pm for a discussion centered on topics of interest to you!

Bring your dinner and join us in the Campus Ministry Center on the 2nd floor of Towers.

Past topics include: religious articles as jewelry, social media and relationships, what kind of believer are you, discussion of current movies in relation to life and faith, and the problem of evil and our response.  If you are interested, please join us!

For more information contact Linda Donovan at donovanl@duq.edu
