This year we have three Connection small groups led by peer leaders that get together at various times throughout the week to study the Sunday Gospel. It's our oldest and most attended small group. 

Women's Endow Study

Led by Penn Newman's Campus Minister Carolyn Shields, undergrads and graduate students come together to study and read various documents such as JPII's Letter to Women, On the Dignity and Vocation of Women (Mulieris Dignitatem), Of Human Life (Humanae Vitae), and more!

Catholicism 101

Come and learn more about what we believe and why. This course is open to everyone, Catholics and non-Catholics. Held on Sundays at 3:30pm-5:15pm. Email Marisa at for more info, or visit


Men's Marian Group

For men who have a strong desire to grow in their faith and recognize they cannot get to Heaven by themselves. Meets every Wednesday, 9-10pm. Email Vince to join.

Young Adults/Graduate Students

Weekly reflections under the direction of Fr. Carlos. For young people who strive to grow in their relationship with God in an environment that is both challenging and supportive. With frequent camping trips, pilgrimages, and retreats, this is a rather active group! Meets on Wednesdays at 7:30pm. Email Jessi to join.

Women Only Connections

This women's-only small group studies the Sunday Gospel and provides peer led fellowship, support, and...lots of snacks.
