Digital Ministry
Serving the students doesn't stop, even when campus closes. We are still able to livestream Mass, have Bible studies and bison Catholic nights online, as well as spiritual direction with the students. You can see our ministry update HERE

Please join us in prayer as we pray for our students, all healthcare workers, and those at risk during the pandemic.

Zoom Bible Studies
Distance isn't a barrier for Bible studies. Our FOCUS and student missionaries have moved weekly Bible study online for the rest of the semester. While not ideal, the students are still able to continue fellowship and study. Check out one of the Bible studies below!

Sisters of Life Virtual Visits
We were blessed to have the Sisters of Life visit us from their convent March 30 - April 1. During their virtual visit, the sisters hosted women's night, had spiritual direction, and prayed with the students during their Holy Hour.

Check out the video they sent to the students below.

The Bike Race is still on!

Given the unique circumstances, the race will continue online with the first ever digital race AND IT'S NEVER BEEN EASIER TO RIDE! Here's what you need to know:

The race will be different in two ways:
1- Riders will submit their miles biked from anywhere in the world via STRAVA
2- There is no set amount of miles you need to ride! Yes, that's correct. Riders will bike as few or as many miles as they would like (up to 25 miles per registrant).

To win the race, NDSU has to have the most registered riders, the most logged miles, and the most money raised. And, we need your help!

Not a student, not a problem! Anyone can register to ride in the Bike Race. Register today with the link below.
