Help your college-bound student connect with faith

| April 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

College Connection for Catholics, sponsored by Serra International and Serra clubs in the archdiocese, is again seeking the names of Catholic high school seniors and the colleges they will be attending.

College Connection for Catholics will then send the information to Catholic organizations, such as Newman Club, FOCUS and St. Paul’s Outreach, that will let students know about times and locations of liturgies on or near the campuses they will be attending.

A packet of information about the campus ministry program is given to each graduate, and campus ministers can then send an invitation to the college freshmen before they leave home.

A study by CARA for the U.S. bishops found that “young Catholics who practice their faith while in college and attend Mass more often become leaders in their parishes and are more likely to consider a religious vocation.”

Pastors, youth ministers and Catholic high schools are asked to help CCC to connect with students by calling Michelle Pothen at (651) 450-6833, ext. 14; or Judy Cozzens at (952) 681-2080.
