Our Mission:
To Propose Jesus Christ and Form His Disciples 

Who We Are

University Catholic is a community of fun-loving, joy-filled students who are serious about our faith.  We are officially represented at Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities, but all Nashville-area college students are welcome at our Masses, events, retreats and mission trips.

Representing every area of student life, University Catholic unites us in fellowship and friendship as we deepen our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our chaplain is devoted to making the Sacraments readily available and serving the students’ spiritual needs. FOCUS missionaries, who are recent college graduates, reach out and meet students where they are.


What We Do

Our mission – to propose Jesus Christ and form His disciples – drives everything we do. Built upon four dimensions of formation (spiritual, intellectual, apostolic & human), our programs are intended to help students deepen their faith and become well-formed, well-rounded  Catholics.  Whether at our Thursday CREDO sessions, on campus at FOCUS lunch, or at  Sunday Supper, we seek to do everything in and for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

The Four Dimensions of Formation

Hiking, Alley Parties, Bonfires, Men's and Women's days
Worship, Sacraments, Prayers, Retreats, Bible Studies
Blessing Bags, Heart of Mary, Dismas House
CREDO, Thomistic Institute, Catechesis
