CSU Catholics meet Sept. 24 in Hayward

The Catholic community at California State University East Bay will gather for the opening Mass of the new school year at 7 p.m. Sept. 24, in the Multipurpose Room, on the first floor of the New Student Union on the Hayward campus.

Eunice Park, campus minister, reports about 85 percent of the students she serves come from the Diocese of Oakland. The majority are second-generation immigrants of Latino and Filipino backgrounds. "The majority are also first-generation college students, which means that they face a variety of challenges in their academic endeavors," she said.

The Catholic ministry to students, which is supported by All Saints Parish in Hayward, is looking for space for activities. A major change, Park said, is that the campus ministry building the Catholics had been using for the past four years is no longer available.

"As a result, the setting and nature of our events will change drastically," she said. "We will have to figure out where we will be holding our activities. Some will be on campus, but because the campus is impacted and space is incredibly limited, we will not be able to hold all of our events there."

Information on the ministry is available at its Facebook page: www.facebook.com/CSUEBCatholicClub.
