Faith Communities are small groups of students (from 3 to 7) who gather each week to read, reflect, and respond to the weekly scriptures from the upcoming Sunday Mass. Although we use the Catholic Lectionary, students from all faiths are welcome to come together to share common values, concerns and support from fellow students.
In reflecting on the gospel reading of the upcoming Sunday, we learn together how to incorporate gospel values into our lives as college students, young adults, and people of faith.
