Practicing one's faith in the middle of a large university can be difficult. VolCatholic — the Catholic Student Group on Campus — the Focus Missionaries and the staff at St. John XXIII Catholic Center work together to provide a place for students to explore the Catholic Faith, foster a love of God and a deepening of one's spiritual life. We provide educational opportunities in an open environment, rooted in the Catholic Tradition. We try to manifest our Christian faith through Social Justice and compassionate works of mercy.

All students are welcome, of any religious background. We respect and work with people of other faiths to further our common goals.

VolCatholic Student Group - Come join other students for discussion, pizza, companionship and fun. We meet every other Wednesday at 7 PM while school is in session. Check out our schedule in the Calendar. If you are on Facebook, check out our group page here. We are named VolCatholic.


Helping Others is an important part of living our faith. Watch our Calendar for special events during the year. And if you have any ideas, help us work together to make a difference in our world.

Opportunities to learn and grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church are an important part of our mission. Check out the Small Group Bible Studies offered by our Focus Missionaries (from the Fellowship of Catholic University Students). Check us out on Facebook.

At St. John XXIII, we have a College Knights of Columbus Council that is active on campus. Look into becoming a Knight and being part of this great tradition. Click here for more information.

In the spring of 2016, the new Columbiettes Auxilary (a women's organization affiliated with the Knights of Columbus) was officially chartered. Dedicated to service, they sponsor events, activities and service opportunities and work with the men of the collegiate Knights of Columbus on common projects. Click here for more information.
