CLC Community Meetings 

Come and see who we are at a CLC community meeting/interest session on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:00pm in Wolfington Hall. CLC community meetings are open to ALL interested students (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors), past Koinonia members and CLC leaders. The community meetings will consist of prayer and reflection (30 minutes) and hospitality/community (30 minutes). 

Small Group Formation

Groups are made up of 8-10 students, with student leaders supporting as facilitators. There are freshmen groups, sophomore groups, sophomore/junior/senior groups, and senior groups.  Small groups will begin meeting the first week of October. 

 

Meeting Format

Weekly meetings are one hour, and flow through these elements: opening prayer (music, meditation, poem or scripture), personal check-in, focus exercise, reflective sharing and closing prayer.

 

Participants

Regardless of where you are on your faith journey, you are encouraged to join CLC. All participants have a unique spirituality.  Students of all faiths traditions and backgrounds are welcome.

 

Foundation

CLC is rooted in the Christian faith, with a rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality.  Living gospel values through friendship is at the heart of the program.
