Cura Faith Sharing Groups


"We have all known the long loneliness
and we have learned that the only solution is love,
and that love comes with community."
-Dorothy Day

Cura faith-sharing groups derive their name from the Jesuit value cura personalis. While this is commonly understood as meaning “care for the whole person,” we in Campus Ministry like to interpret this value as care for the individual, as an individual—with all the experiences, identities, and complications that come along with being human. We hope to offer an avenue of connection, so that we can provide for each other the kind of love and care that can only come from being in community.

Cura groups gather each week to reflect and pray together, discussing topics that are relevant to your lives as students. Groups include 5-10 participants and are led by 1-2 student leaders. We offer both general groups and affinity spaces for students with shared identities.
