Faithful Servants Small Group

We invite you to join a new bible study and service group this semester called Faithful Servants. It seeks to blend the Christian call to servitude with a scriptural foundation. Everyone in the group will pick a service site to go to for at least an hour a week, and then we will also meet as a group once a week for an hour to discuss our experiences and study scripture relevant to service. We will meet on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. in the classroom at the Catholic Center. For more information, contact Rick.

Bible Studies

Bible studies are comprised of a small group of students who help each other build a relationship with Christ through scripture and faith discussion. For more information, please contact Nicole or Carlos.

Men's Group

The men’s group at the Catholic Center is a group that creates community and a support network for college men. Through discussions that are focused on specific issues that pertain to men, this group strives towards forming men who can navigate and integrate a nuanced faith life amidst the backdrop of a world that is not black and white.
