Food Pantry Reopens at the Start of the Semester
The food pantry on campus is closed during the summer months and will reopen the first week of classes. The Food Pantry Coordinator (TBD) will be a student receiving a small stipend each semester in order to maintain required standards. Food pantry questions or food donations should be forwarded to Susie Kowalski who will be the supervisor/overseer of the food pantry throughout the academic year skowalski@Ltsg.edu.

Independent Study on Creating Liturgies
Interested in thinking through what it looks like to create a meaningful worship service? Well, you’re in luck! There is a small group of students developing an independent study course (Fall 2014) focused around creating liturgy with attention to text, structure, and music. Because this is an independent study course there is flexibility for students to mould the ROSA to their particular interests and questions. There is the possibility for the course to be 1.5 or 3 credits. Send questions or exclamations of interest to Courtney at
