In an ever-shifting social and economic climate, USC Caruso Catholic Center remains focused on the gospel of Jesus Christ, and commit to carrying this message, serving our students so that they may come to understand God’s care for them, especially in moments of darkness, self-doubt, and confusion. It is by his grace that we are able to continue Christ’s message of hope, extending love, and practical support to the Catholic Trojan family and beyond.
