SUICIDE PREVENTION INFORMATION
Spring is a time when more suicides occur. One would think winter, but we expect to be down in winter. The Director of Counseling has a program on her webpage called Ask, Listen, Refer. This program is free, and is a prevention training program. We all need to learn the warning signs and what we can do prevent a suicide. Please take this short online program. It can be found here: www.asklistenrefer.org/mercy
 
We also have an app called RUOK Mercy. It is free and has all the information at your fingertips for on campus and off campus resources for prevention and help.
 
A big thanks to the 20 people who came out and got trained last week for prevention!
 
RICE BOWLS

Did you take a Rice Bowl at the Ash Wednesday Prayer Service or from the Campus Ministry bulletin board by the Student Lounge?
Have you given up that daily pop, weekly candy bar, or routine stop at a fast food place and put that money in the Bowl? What you give up can help others!
Return the Rice Bowl with your donation to Sister Sally in Campus Ministry by April 10.
The money will be sent to Catholic Relief Services. 25% of the money returns to the Toledo Diocese to aid food programs in northwest Ohio.
 
HOLY WEEK PRAYER SERVICE

Make it the "Best Lent Ever" by attending the Holy Week Prayer Service on Tuesday, March 31, at 12:15 p.m., in St. Joseph Chapel. We will recall in prayer and song the holy days of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Let us celebrate together and make Holy Week holy!
