CLC's mission is to bring students together to engage in intentional conversations, explore tools of Ignatian Spirituality, and form meaningful relationships. Weekly small groups allow peers to open up in a supportive space about important topics such as spirituality as college students.

Christian Life Community Programs

The Beloved Retreat

Engage your creativity as a spiritual practice on this 24-hour retreat. No art experience is needed! This is a mid-semester break to deeply listen to yourself, others, and God in new, poignant, and playful ways.

Taize Prayer

Taizé is a form a Christian prayer originating from the ecumenical Christian community of Taizé in France. It is a simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to dwell deeply on Christ's presence around and within us. It is a time to "come away and rest for awhile".

General registration for the 2023 - 2024 academic year will be available soon! There is no application process, but all new members must register in order to be placed in a group.
