Helping Hands

Upcoming Events

As one of the largest Catholic student organizations at USC, we offer a variety of intellectual programs, service opportunities, and fellowship activities for you to participate in. When you participate and share your talents with us, you become an integral part of our Trojan Catholic Family tapestry.

Night at the Grove

Come and join the Catholic center for a night at The Grove on Thursday, November 2. We will meet in the Catholic center courtyard at 6:00 p.m. for fun, shopping, and dinner at Maggiano's. There is a $5 fee, and we will be providing transportation. Please RSVP to Carlyn Gilbert, and feel free to contact her for more details as well. We can't wait to see you there!

Theology On Tap: Languages Of God

We invite you to join us for Theology on Tap: Languages of God on Thursday, October 19 at 7:00 p.m. in Newman Hall. Love is seemingly the easiest language to speak, but the most difficult to understand. At this session we will be exploring love from our own lens as well as God's perspective and how we feel God's love and presence in one particular way or another. Our guest speakers are Mark and Carolyn Gomez.

Pilgrimage To Rome

We invite you on a journey of a lifetime in May 2018. Join us on this spiritual journey through Rome and the surrounding areas. We are still determining exact details and costs. If you would like us to add your name to the list of those who have an interest in the trip, please contact Sister Jenny via e-mail. Tentative travel dates are May 13-14, 2018. We will determine the cost based on the number of participants.

Hurricane Recovery in Puerto Rico Donation Drive

On behalf of our fellow Americans in the Caribbean Islands of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, we call upon the Trojan Network to aid in supporting relief efforts to 3.65 million people directly impacted by hurricanes Irma and Maria. As trojans, we have a responsibility to give back to the world that has given us so much.

We ask that Trojans help by donating the following items:
Batteries of all kinds, radios, lanterns (solar powered or battery powered), USB car charger cables, battery operated fans, rechargeable USB power bars, duct tape, utility knives, trash bags, electric extension cords, work gloves, water filters, insect repellent, first aid kits, over the counter medicines of all kinds, medical supplies, baby formula, pampers for all genders and ages, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, pillows, blankets, towels, inflatable beds, tents, and clothing.

Starting Monday, October 2 through Sunday, October 29 in the CC Student Lounge, you will find a box where you can donate any of the items mentioned above for Puerto Rico's recovery. The items will be delivered to one of the hardest hit parts of the island that is currently having difficulty getting aide. 

If you desire more detailed information about relief efforts, contact Victor Cruz Jr and Limari Archuleta with "USC for Caribbean Relief" in the subject line.
