CCM Weekly Meetings

Socialize with Catholics

Meet and socialize with other Catholics and to learn about what Catholics believe.

CCM meets Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Reflection & Spiritual Care Center. It’s a great way to meet and socialize with other Catholics and to learn about what Catholics believe. Feel free to attend, whether or not you’re Catholic!

In the first half of the meeting, we plan spiritual, social, and service activities. And in the second, half, we discuss issues of faith. In the past, we discussed a wide range of topics, including:

  • “The Way” movie discussion
  • Praying with color
  • Pope Francis’s environmental encyclical
  • Poverty in Haiti
  • Theology of the Body
  • Saints and Canonization
  • Varieties of Meditation
  • Reconciliation
  • Stress relief through humor
  • Vocations – religious and otherwise

And always, there are refreshments!
