The Catholic Trojan Family

We are a diverse community made up of over 10,000 current USC students as well as alumni, parents, and friends of USC—we call this the Catholic Trojan Family. 

Throughout the school year, the USC Caruso Catholic Center offers our Catholic Trojan Family a variety of service, spirit, and intellect opportunities to participate in. You’ll become tightly integrated in our family as you participate in social justice initiatives, worship together at any of our eight weekday and Sunday masses, attend engaging lectures, or simply break bread together at our weekly community dinner on Sundays.

Our History

Since our humble beginning in 1923 when just 62 USC students gathered together to form the Newman Club on campus, the Catholic tradition at USC has grown with the university itself. Generations of students have attended Mass here, graduated, and made our Catholic alumni network stronger than ever. 

Today the USC Caruso Catholic Center is one of the largest communities of Catholic students west of the Mississippi. The opening of our Our Savior Church and USC Caruso Catholic Center in 2012 marked a new chapter in our long history. Through the tremendous support of our growing and dedicated Catholic Trojan community, we became what and who we are today.
