Nova Forum

We invite you to join us on November 27 for our Nova Forum. The talk will start at 3:30 p.m. and take place in Smile's (first floor) at the CC. Professor David Albertson of the School of Religion at USC will lead the talk. The theme is Courage to Love: Struggles of Modern Saints. Please contact Katie for questions.

Blessed Brunch

Ladies (female students, grad students, alumni, and parishioners), are you looking for authentic sisterhood and community? Well, a blessed brunch might be exactly what you are looking for at USC. All you need to bring is an open heart, hungry appetite, and your bible. Each month is different, but one thing will always remain true monthly - a community centered on Christ gathered to share a meal, prayer intentions, and our faith. Invite a girlfriend and just show up. The rest we will provide! For details, please contact Tricia. Blessed brunch begins on November 24 at 11:00 a.m. in the library on the 2nd floor at the CC.

Homeless Ministry

Homeless Ministry provides USC students the opportunity to serve those who are without homes on Skid Row. We'll meet in front of Newman Hall at the Catholic Center at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and head directly to the St. Vincent de Paul Cardinal Manning Center. It's a great way to serve alongside your fellow Trojans and break out of the USC bubble! Contact Mary Madden for questions.

St. Francis Center Breakfast Outreach

Join us every other Saturday of the month to serve our brothers and sisters at the St. Francis homeless outreach center in Downtown LA. We will be helping to cook and serve breakfast. Meet at the Catholic Center courtyard at 6:30 a.m. and please let Tia Razafy know if you are planning on coming the Friday of so she can coordinate rides.
