The Prayer Bench


Come join us for on-campus prayer every Monday at 700! Prayer Bench is an informal gathering of students and campus ministry staff focused on intercessory prayer. Want to pray for a sick family member, an upcoming test, a friend having a rough time, for help with some big life decisions? Come to the Prayer Bench and we’ll listen and pray with you.


We’ll meet in the Commons at the bench across from the fountain. If the weather is unpleasant, we’ll meet inside the Commons building with Rachel’s and Subway. Newman’s Dcn. Mike Colson will lead evening prayer for those interested at the beginning of Prayer Bench, and both Dcn. Mike and a campus minister will be available to pray with students individually. Group prayer among students is also encouraged. If you would like to offer a particular prayer (like a rosary or chaplet, for example), just let us know beforehand so that we can arrange for any necessary materials.
