Carroll Faith Communities

HOW DOES FAITH IMPACT YOUR COLLEGE LIFE?  HOW DOES COLLEGE LIFE IMPACT YOUR FAITH?  That is, in essence, what Carroll Faith Communities (CFC) is trying to help answer.

CFCs are small faith communities grounded in spirituality and community. They are a safe place to reverence the individual experiences that bind us together. Groups consist of 8-10 members who gather weekly for faith-filled conversations, prayer, and reflection as they seek to integrate their faith with the realities of everyday life. CFCs are facilitated entirely by peer leaders. Students of all faith backgrounds are welcomed and encouraged to join our vibrant community! We are one of the largest student organizations on campus with approximately 200 students involved every year.

Mission Statement: We form an intentional, student-led community that inspires and connects individuals through meaningful conversations, reflections, and actions rooted in the Jesuit values of spirituality, community, and service as we grow in faith together as one John Carroll community. 

Applications are now OPEN to sign up for CFCs for the 2019-2020 Academic Year!  You will be notified of your group by the third week in September.  APPLY HERE:
