The Students Helping Students Emergency Fund provides funds to students that express need in a emergency situation. This may include meals, bedding, clothing, etc. Please fill out the application below if you are a Benedictine student in need.
As students, you are closet to your peers. This program is focused on participation with the full understanding that college students don't have much financially but have plenty of heart. If one in two students gives the minimum donation, we can raise over $3,000 to help students in need in just one semester.
If you would like to make a donation in-person or have questions, please contact Carrie Roberts by phone at (630) 829-6028 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: 'Give to Students Helping Students'.
The St. Benedict Chapel Choir is made up of faith-filled musicians. Some of our members went through a selection process to receive a scholarship for their participation, while others simply participate to share their love of music with the Benedictine community. If you are interested in joining the St. Benedict Chapel Choir, please contact Carol Nowatzke, campus minister, coordinator of retreats, faith formation and liturgy, at (630) 829-6029 or email@example.com.
Training for students who want to become liturgical ministers is offered on an as-needed basis and takes place in the St. Benedict Chapel. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Joliet requires training annually for those who desire to be lectors or “Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion,” altar servers, choir participants and usher/greeters.
For more information or to become a liturgical minister, contact Carol Nowatzke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
