Top Ways to Connect as a New Student at St. Mary’s

Mass at St. Mary's


Join us for the source and summit of our lives. We have lots of Mass times on the weekend, and we have daily Mass Monday-Friday! After Mass, there’s always an opportunity to meet and visit with other students.

Connect Staff Welcome


Connect is an August event will let you meet others in a small group and help you experience life at St. Mary's. In addition to going to Mass and Adoration, you'll be able to learn about the different organizations you can be a part of. Welcome home!

St. Mary's Home Groups

Home Groups

Members of a home group can enter into friendship and come to share life with other men and women. St. Mary’s Home Groups provide an opportunity to dive deeper in the Catholic faith while coming to encounter the person of Jesus Christ. 


John 15

John 15 is a community designed specifically for freshmen. If you're looking for a way to get "plugged in" to the community at St. Mary's but don't know where to start, you're looking in the right place! Get to know others through small groups, “family” time, weekly hangouts, socials, and more.

Magnify at St. Mary's


Every month, we have Magnify, which is a night of adoration, praise & worship, a talk, and community. Stay tuned to our This Week page to keep an eye on what other events we have planned!
