Catholic Rush Week is a collaborative effort between St. Thomas More Newman Center, SPO, & FOCUS.
Every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. during the academic year, the Buckeye Catholic student group (BCAT) gathers for prayer, fellowship, and a talk about faith, often led by students. Many students gather each week to take a break from the busyness of daily life on campus to just be with others who share the same values, daily joys, and challenges. Come anytime, and if you have not ever been, it's a great way to get connected to the Buckeye Catholic community, learn how to get involved, and make new friends! Also, check out the BCAT facebook group: Buckeye Catholic Community 2021-22. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Bible Study Small Groups
Join a weekly Bible study or small faith sharing group! This is a great way to connect on a deeper level with your faith and grow with peers in lasting friendship. It’s also a great channel to get connected to the larger Catholic community and the many opportunities to grow in faith and leadership. Sign up to be contacted about these groups. For more info or questions, please contact Fr. Evan Cummings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
