Student participation is integral to the worship experience at John Carroll and is reflected in all of our liturgical celebrations. A committee consisting of students, priests, and Campus Ministry staff plan seasonal celebrations, prayer services, and special Masses. More than 100 students are involved in planning liturgies through roles as sacristans, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, and altar servers. In addition to Mass on campus, there are other opportunities to participate in Catholic devotions. If you are not a confirmed Catholic, you may also prepare for sacramental initiation through our RCIA program.

Carroll Faith Communities

Carroll Faith Communities (CFCs) are small faith communities grounded in spirituality and community. They are a safe place to reverence the individual experiences that bind us together.



John Carroll welcomes people of all faiths and of no faith.
