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 the unique experience particular to each. The ultimate goal of these formation groups is for us to become the men and women that God has created us to be.

Women at the Well

Women at the Well is a women’s fellowship and faith sharing group named after Christ's encounter with the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. Christ fulfills the deepest longings in the soul. Come and be built up in sisterhood. Ladies on campus are invited to gather on the first Tuesdays of the month from 8-9:30 p.m. in Campus Ministry Center (below the All Saints Chapel) to grow in faith and fellowship with each other.

COR is a men's faith formation group that is open to all students on campus. "Cor" means heart in Latin, and we seek to have brave hearts in running the race of faith against the obstacles that confront us in our daily lives. We are real men, seeking real relationships rooted in Christ that point us toward virtue. Our home base is the Campus Ministry Lounge at 7 p.m. on the 1st Thursdays of the month, but we sometimes move around to different locations. Get on the email list to be notified monthly regarding the group.

We have F.O.C.U.S. "Fellowship Of Catholic University Students" missionaries on campus who provide various bible studies, retreats, and fellowship throughout the year. A bio of our missionaries can be found on FOCUS's website.


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.
