Catholic Trojan Parent Association

For those who want to get more involved, the Catholic Trojan Parent Association is a great way to connect with other Catholic Trojan parents in a supportive, nurturing environment. The group meets regularly over Zoom, and our more veteran parents are ready to answer any questions, talk through issues, or simply be a listening ear during a difficult transition. With your membership, you will have an opportunity to participate in special welcome week events, parents weekend, and graduation!

Included in your annual membership:

  • Birthday Mass offered for your child at the 5:00 p.m. Mass on the first Sunday of that month
  • Candle blessing for your student
  • Keynote speaker presentations to view issues through the lens of our Catholic faith
  • Family retreat and prayer opportunities throughout the year
  • Exclusive USC Catholic Trojan t-shirt
