Moments of Faith
Moments of Faith Coming Alive
At Carroll, we understand what it means to be Catholic. It means being thrilled by God’s love for each person and exploring that love through prayer, study, and service. It means that we welcome every student as a gift entrusted to us by God to whom we extend the hospitality and sense of community that are hallmarks of the Catholic tradition. It means living for others with a commitment to justice. It means finding ways to ease suffering around the world. It means being open to whatever is true, good, and beautiful in all faiths. It means that we welcome everyone to a sincere dialogue where all perspectives are welcomed.
That is what being Catholic means to us. And together, we live it every day. Proudly.
Ours is a Catholic liberal arts experience, where education is not so much about imparting information as it is about the formation of minds and hearts. Where students form keen intellects and good hearts, combining reason with faith, rigorous thinking with an awareness of the transcendent.
Moments that change lives.
Serving others is in our hearts. So when our students give back by volunteering at a homeless shelter, providing elderly care outreach, creating water purification systems in Mexico, traveling across the U.S. to learn from and be with the poor over spring break, raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or getting involved in Carroll's Campus Ministry, it’s never because they have to. It’s just them being who they are.
"I was able to take part in the Engineers Without Borders program and it was a really amazing experience. It feels good knowing that you can use the knowledge you have to help communities around the world." – Ibrahima Niang, 2017
Moments of worship.
When you see more than 300 students worshipping together at our Sunday Mass, it’s a powerful sight. We know. Because we see it every week. Students saying yes to grace. And it’s a time for students of all faiths to come together, a true demonstration of the welcoming spiritual community you’ll find here.
Some of life’s most profound moments come from connecting with God, contemplating your deepest desires, and exploring your spirituality with others who represent a rich diversity of faiths. That’s what happens at the retreats in which our students engage.
