As of 2014, Georgia Tech had roughly 19,500 students, with about 3,800 of those students being Catholic! Today, those numbers have surely increased. The Georgia Tech Catholic Center remains a hub of positive campus activity. A place where Catholic students of every age and from all over the world come together to receive the sacraments, discover the Catholic tradition, discern vocations, attend retreats, share coffee and donuts, participate in service-oriented ministries and give time and talent to assist the poor and hungry. These are but a few of the opportunities to worship, play, study and pray offered regularly at Georgia Tech Catholic Center.
As Catholics, it is our responsibility to build up the Church on campus. We must sustain the vital contributions to intellectual, moral and spiritual growth that campus ministry provides for young people. Studies show that the most important time in determining if an adult will continue in their faith traditions is during their college years.The goal of the Georgia Tech Catholic Center is to continue to build up the Body of Christ in our Church and our world.
We are 100% self-funded by donations from our students, alumni, parents, faculty and friends. We receive NO financial support from Georgia Tech or from the Archdiocese of Atlanta, not even for our priest’s salary and benefits. We are not a typical parish. We are a campus ministry and while stewardship is strongly emphasized, our “parishioners” are almost entirely students with limited financial resources.
We ask you to consider a gift to the GTCC either through a weekly/monthly/quarterly offertory, participating in our Annual Appeal, sponsorship of an event or activity, a gift-in-kind or through a planned gift. Your gift, no matter the size, has a tremendous positive impact on our students every day and allows us to continue to expand our ministry and outreach to students. Each and every Mass and program is only possible through your support.
Please consider sponsoring one day in the life of the GTCC this year with a $1,000 donation, and we will remember you and your family’s intentions in our daily Rosary and Mass. You may choose a day of significance, or we can assign you the next day available. If your finances allow, you may choose to support more than one day as well!
Thank you for your support and prayers!
