STUDENT LEADERS ARE THE

HEART AND SOUL OF OUR MINISTRY!

WHO ARE WE?

We are faith-filled students have answered our baptismal call by sharing our God given gifts to build up the Kingdom of God on the campus of the University of Cincinnati and bring a Christian witness to the academic world. We strive to make St. Monica-St. George a welcoming, diverse, and Christ-centered community.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We seek to help college students learn about their Catholic faith and how to integrate their faith into academics to educate the whole person.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?

We offer programs and opportunities to grow in one's Catholic faith by

  • forming the faith community by being a place of hospitality and welcome;
  • growing together in our faith through bible studies, retreats, meaningful liturgy, and other events;
  • forming our consciences through participating in a rich sacramental life, discernment programs, and programs dealing with moral questions;
  • incorporating Catholic Social Teaching into our life through service projects, spring break mission trips, and advocacy opportunities;
  • growing in our own development through theological reflection, prayer groups, mentoring, and being involved in liturgical celebrations
  • facilitating growth in our development as future leaders of the Church through peer ministry, leadership training, and opportunities to get involved with the parish.

Our Leadership Teams

1. Small Group Leaders - students on this leadership team help students on their faith journeys by planning and facilitating small groups. This ministry is a great way to connect with other students and to help them to form community with each other. You will also meet regularly with Holly and other small group leaders for sharing and prayer.

2. Spirituality and Faith Formation - these students work to plan the retreat, adoration, stations of the cross and other events that give our community opportunities to pray together and grow in faith.

3. Community and Outreach - these students work to bring the community together through after mass hospitality, the spring formal and other outings. On campus, they promote the Newman Center and help to bring the Gospel on campus through activities such as tabling, gift bags in the residence halls, and game nights.

4. Christian Living - these students work to help our community understand and act on our social justice tradition and form a Christian conscience to make decision based on gospel values through such programs as service projects, spring break mission trips, speakers, and movie nights
