Welcome to the Catholic Trojan Family
Hands stacked on top of each other

Upcoming Events

As one of the largest Catholic student organizations at USC, we offer a variety of intellectual programs, service opportunities, and fellowship activities for you to participate in. When you participate and share your talents with us, you become an integral part of our Trojan Catholic Family tapestry.

Catalina Island Silent Retreat

In our prayer lives, do we spend too much time talking to God, as though by multiplication of words we could attract God's attention to our prayers? How often do we quiet ourselves and really try and let God speak to us? This silent retreat, beginning on Friday, November 8 and ending on Sunday, November 10, is your opportunity to listen for God's voice in your heart and life. Students who have made this retreat in the past enter the experience with a lot of nervous energy, but by the end of the weekend, they all are craving more silence in their lives! You will receive plenty of opportunity to relax and sleep, as well as speak with an individual spiritual director, who will help you tailor the experience to your unique needs. Don't let the fear of not talking keep you from this amazing experience of sacred silence! Note that we will be leaving from San Pedro on Friday morning, in order to travel to USC's beautiful facility on Catalina Island!

  • Early-bird registration rate (before October 22, 2019): $50.00

The talk will start at 3:30 p.m. and take place in Smile's (first floor) at the CC.

Join Our Choir

We're recruiting vocalists, musicians, shower singers, and those who just love to praise the Lord with song! We have several choirs from which you can participate. I'm sure you've thought of all the reasons not to join: "I can't really sing." or "I've already got another club meeting at that time." But have you ever thought about the amazing reasons to join? Learn about music and grow. Learn how to cantor a Responsorial Psalm or Gospel Acclamation! Singing in the choir is also a wonderful way to strengthen your faith life. Plus, it's super fun! Contact Andrew today! What are you waiting for?

Communications Committee Recruitment

Do you consider yourself a lowkey/ highkey media content creator? Are you a budding photographer or filmmaker? Do human-interest stories captivate you? The CC's student communications committee provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a wide variety of projects to serve the Catholic Trojan community in a fun & collaborative environment that innovates ways we outreach to USC students. Fun, right?! If you're interested in joining, contact Johannah Suegay, Student Executive Board Communications Chair.
