Welcome to the Georgia Tech Catholic Center! +JMJ
I’m Fr. Branson Hipp, the chaplain and director of Campus Ministry here at the Georgia Tech Catholic Center.
Our mission is to provide a community for Georgia Tech Students, Faculty, and Friends to encounter Christ in the Liturgy, the Sacraments, Formation and Discipleship, and Christian Service. We strive to form intentional disciples of our Lord.
Although we serve the entire community of Georgia Tech, with over 30,000 undergraduates and graduates, this community is meant for you and to serve you in growing in relationship with Christ and His Church. Both of my older brothers attended Georgia Tech (while I went off to seminary), so I have seen how this university and the Catholic community here helped to form them into the men that they are today. I love serving here as Chaplain, and seeing how Christ has been at work in so many of y’all’s lives as you prepare for what’s ahead.
Our community of staff, missionaries, Catholic Student Organization and students do an incredible job of serving this community with bible studies, formation, time of adoration, community events and outreach. Whatever you feel called to, there’s a place here to grow and serve. For those interested in becoming Catholic or learning more about the Catholic faith, we have classes and the process called the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA).
“The true protagonist of history is the beggar: Christ begging for the heart of man, and the heart of man begging for Christ.” -Servant of God Luigi Giussani
