Mission Statement

Christian Life Communities (CLCs) are intentional student groups built on the pillars of faith, community and mission. Participants desire to deepen their awareness of self, others and God. Groups meet weekly for conversation, reflection and prayer, taking pause together in sacred space.

Small Groups

Approximately 15 weekly CLC groups are made up of 5-6 student participants, with student leaders supporting as facilitators.

You are invited to join a group that is Exploring Spirituality, a group of Deepening in Catholic/Christian Faith, or one dedicated to a particular affinity, such as:

  • Men or Women's group
  • Bible Study
  • Coming Out, Spiritually: LQTBQIA+

Meeting Format

Weekly meetings are one hour on weekday afternoons and evenings. Meetings follow this structure:

  • Opening Prayer
  • Check-In
  • Focus Experience
  • Community Announcements
  • Closing Prayer

Participants

Regardless of where you are on your faith journey, you are encouraged to join CLC. All participants have a unique spirituality.  Students of all faiths traditions and backgrounds are welcome.

Foundation

CLC is rooted in the Christian faith, with a rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality.  Living gospel values through friendship is at the heart of the program.
