In case you haven't noticed, men and women are different. They approach things differently and have different needs. This is true also in the spiritual life. Carroll has separate formation groups for both women and men so that each gender can ask questions and explore issues that are relevant to their unique take on life. The ultimate goal of each group is for us to become the men and women that God has created us to be.
Via is a women’s bible study and faith sharing group named after the first followers of Christ who were called “The Way.” Ladies on campus are invited to gather on Tuesday nights 5:50-7pm in St. Charles Chapel to grow in faith and fellowship with each other.

COR is a group of men that gathers and tries to put Christ at the center of their life. We are real men, seeking real relationships that are rooted in Christ. We meet in the Maronik room of the Cube from 5:50 to 7:00pm every Tuesday. Email Dan Thies for more info.
The initials R.C.I.A. stands for the "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults." (RCIA) The RCIA, a program of the Catholic Church, is oriented towards those who are searching and inquiring about the Catholic way of life. Many students who come to Carroll find a comfort with the Catholic faith and seek to enter the Catholic Church through this process.
Classes meet every Sunday morning beginning in October and the Sacraments of Initiation are celebrated in late April or Early May. This process can be for those who have been baptized in another Christian faith or for those who seek a Christian Baptism.
