Who We Are

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS (RCIA)

Help us in building up the Body of Christ at the Catholic Center! RCIA is a key program in spreading the Kingdom of God here on Georgia Tech’s campus. If you are interested in receiving the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation) or becoming a sponsor, please email RCIA@gtcatholic.org at any time!

APOLOGETICS

If you enjoy diving into the teachings of the Church, want to tackle the hard questions of the faith, or are curious as to why we believe what we do, then please join us for Apologetics on Tuesday nights at 7 PM! Our student-led program focuses on facilitating honest and constructive discussion with others as we all work toward a common truth. 

RENEW

Renew is a night of Eucharistic adoration, confession, and praise & worship held every other Thursday at 7:30 PM. Come adore our Lord, hear student testimonies, share in fellowship, and begin again! All are welcomed.

RETREATS

The Catholic Center works hard to offer one or two retreats every term for students to come grow in intimacy with the Lord, share in communion with eachother, and rest well. We encourage all students to set aside this time each semester to recenter our lives towards what is meaningful and true!

PODCAST

Check out recent homilies and discussions between Fr. Branson and members of the Catholic Center community as we dive into differnt books, movies, current events, and more.
