Goals for Small Faith Communities
We hope to create a wonderful, faith-filled weekly experience for our members. It is our overall goal that each participant will feel more committed to his/her faith after having completed a year in a CFC. In order to do this, we aspire to guide our members toward achieving the following five goals:
- Learns to cultivate a habit of reflection
- Understands the importance of a faith community to help develop his/her spirituality through reflection and conversation
- Is familiar with Ignatian spirituality and the Jesuit mission of the University
- Has a basic understanding of how faith and culture interact
CFCA: Carroll Faith Community for Athletes
CFCA is a unique opportunity for student-athletes at John Carroll University to grow in a faith community that strives to build upon personal reflection. This platform is for student-athletes to deepen their faith through prayer, Bible studies, and individual and group dialogue. CFCA will integrate faith, athletics, and the realities of a student-athletes’ everyday life. Student-athletes of all faith backgrounds are welcomed and encouraged to join our community! The current leader is graduating in 2019 so we are looking for new leaders to take over this community. If interested, please contact Anne: firstname.lastname@example.org.
