News & Notes

    Welcome Back!

    The fall semester started just a couple of weeks ago and Ratio Christi at Marshall University has already been busy! Prior to the semester starting we attended WOW for incoming freshman and RecFest the following Saturday! Our first meeting was held the first week of class and we have two new students joining us this semester. We decided to watch the documentary Mining for God. After the first week of viewing only the first twenty minutes, it appears to have been a good choice! (a forty minute discussion followed). So, life on campus is getting back to normal and we are excited of where God is leading us this term!
