The Good Word March 2021


March 1, 2021

Hello Catholic Center Alumni and friends!

We're somehow already in the middle of the semester, still in the midst of extraordinary circumstances, and we're finding the Lord in all of it. We're happy to report that all is going well here. Although students are busy with studies, they are making space for the Lord  and growing in their faith in a multitude of ways. Before the semester started, our leadership team spent a lot of time praying and discerning the ways we’re called to serve the community and help the students grow in the faith through their current circumstances. We’ve been working to increase accessibility to the sacraments, solid resources to grow in faith formation, and more opportunities to grow in the life of prayer. We're incredibly grateful to the Lord for giving us the space and time to do these things well. We look to our greater Catholic Center community and ask that you keep us close in prayer as we continue to grow into a community that belongs to Him.

We kicked off the Spring semester with Welcome Back Week!

SEEK 2021 Goes Virtual

SEEK21 was a conference like never before. Due to present circumstances, SEEK21 happened all over the country. We hosted SEEK21 at Camp Hidden Lake. My team and I worked hard to make the experience as much like a normal SEEK conference as possible. A big piece was atmosphere; we transformed the gym with lights, banners, and tulle.  Another key part of SEEK is the presence of religious. We were blessed to have three priests and five sisters with us throughout the weekend. Lastly, the sacraments are always the most important part of SEEK. There was daily Mass and many hours of Adoration and Confession were available. In addition to broadcasted speakers, Sr. M. Karolyn, FSGM gave a talk in person preceding the big night of Adoration and Confession. Over 80 people from the Georgia Tech community attended and it has been beautiful to see and hear the graces Jesus poured out over the weekend.

Alumni Opportunity: Apologetics Series 

Join us for our Spring 2021 Apologetics Series each Tuesday at 7 PM (through the end of April) in the Catholic Center lobby.

This semester, the Catholic Center will be offering an ongoing lecture and discussion series for Apologetics. This series will give you the tools to provide an explanation and defense for the Catholic faith: starting from the existence of God, all the way to the Traditions of the Church. 

The classes will aim to build off each other, but please feel free to attend whichever you’re interested in! Masks and social distancing required.

Stay tuned for additional ways you can get involved at the Catholic Center.

We are incredibly grateful for the financial support received this fiscal year. A little goes a long way at the Catholic Center! We're about 85% towards our fiscal year fundraising goal. We continue to ask for your prayers so that we are able to sustain the Catholic Center; please pray for 100% funding before June 30th.

Because we are solely funded by donations, it’s crucial that we are sustained by monthly contributions; To learn more about how to become a recurring donor OR to donate, visit We're most grateful for your help!
