Men's and Women's Formation
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 8-9 p.m. in Campus Ministry Center (below the All Saints 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 Maronick room of the Upper Campus Center (Cube) from 8-9 p.m. every Tuesday.

There are four F.O.C.U.S. "Fellowship Of Catholic University Students" missionaries providing various bible studies, retreats, and fellowship throughout the year.
The initials R.C.I.A. stand for the "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults." 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 Thursday evenings 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.
