The well-being of students is important to the Lynn community in every aspect of life.
Many spiritual traditions encourage participation in a community. Spiritual fellowship, such as attending church or a meditation group, can be sources of social support systems by providing a sense of belonging, security and community.
This is why Johanna Jimenez, sophomore and co-president of the Catholic Knights club (L.U.C.K) at Lynn, took the initiative to let students know the main goals of L.U.C.K.
“Of course the main goal of the club is to connect with the Catholic community on campus,” said Jimenez. “As well as providing events and social meetings to the Catholic community at Lynn to unify and embrace our religion.”
Many hope that this new movement will be beneficial to those students who want to embrace a spiritual life.
“Our ultimate goal is to invite all people at Lynn, what- ever their social or cultural background is, to hear the message of salvation in Jesus Christ so they may come to join us in the fullness of the Catholic faith,” said Carolina Bucio, sophomore.
“One of the purposes of L.U.C.K. is to have an active Catholic community were the members can share their ideas, thoughts and beliefs. Also supporting voluntary activities,” said Marcela Coronell sophomore and co-president of L.U.C.K.
Coronell quotes a popular quote from the Bible, “then the king said to the man of God, ‘Come home with me and refresh yourself, and I will give you a reward.’” Kings 13:7. Coronell continues setting forth that God wants his followers to get to know him.
Whatever one’s source of strength is, drawing closer to it will only make each person stronger in every aspect of his or her own life. The Catholic Knights invites all students to give it a chance and to embrace this opportunity.
