UCAT to me is home, and everyone is like family.
UCat is a Church family that forms, supports, and inspires me daily. UCat’s lifelong bond of community reminds me of God’s pursuit of me and the urgent need (and wonderful adventure) of seeking sainthood together.
As we look at what He has given us and this community, it is hard to discount the value of what UCAT has done to foster and inspire thousands of Holy Souls, including our own, to reach for our best, to live our vocations, to become Saints and bring as many Saints as we can with us.
Because of my formation through University Catholic, I have been able to abandon my “bare minimum” motto. Before I saw Catholicism as a set of rules. Now, I've come to realize I was on top of a gold mine all along. I found the treasure hidden in the field.
I have seen University Catholic transform into a ministry that loves and cares for its students well. At the heart of this ministry is a group of students who love Jesus and allow Him to lead them. I am honored to work here and look forward to see what else the Holy Spirit has in store.
A community that supports, inspires, and forms college students to become the saints they’re made to be.
First, let me thank you for your ministry and dedication to helping sustain and grow faith formation in college Catholics in the Nashville area. I know Emma Kate is leaving college stronger and more active in her faith than ever. As much as we provided a Catholic upbringing, University Catholic is responsible for nurturing and transforming Emma Kate into living an active, Catholic faith-centered life. As parents of four children, John and I are so grateful to you and your ministry. What her father and I desire more than an excellent education or amazing career, is knowing and living with the purpose that our life is for Him -- for His will to be our will. How grateful we are to support and witness Emma Kate dedicate her next two years to helping other young college adults with their faith journey.
