Carthage encourages students to participate in the religious life ministry programs sponsored by the groups listed below. Taken together, our chapel programs give the Carthage community a variety of ways to nurture faith and explore the intersections of spirituality and leadership.
Catholics @ Carthage
Roman Catholics make up the largest religious group on campus. Catholics@Carthage works with the campus pastor to create learning, fellowship, and service opportunities for other Roman Catholic Students on Campus.
Women United by Faith
Women United By Faith connects, challenges, comforts, and supports young women looking to grow in their faith, form close friendships with other women, and understand themselves and their faiths more deeply. Our group addresses numerous concerns of young women of faith which may include: understanding religions, forming close friendships, dating, and finding God’s uniquely designed plan for each young woman. God’s power changes lives, and as we listen to the great call of God’s love we can make a difference! Women United By Faith’s goal is to deepen both relationships with God and one another and to help one another grow in our faiths.

Small Group Bible Studies
Student staff in the Center for Faith and Spirituality lead small group Bible studies in the fall and spring term. Study topics and locations vary (virtual or in-person). Interested in knowing more about studies available? Contact Debbie Clark at email@example.com or Cassie Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campus Community Builders
CFS student community builders in our residence halls are resources to all Carthage students. Campus Community Builders helps students get connected to faith-based organizations on campus, and lead Bible studies and faith-based conversations. They are available for one-on-one faith conversations and peer ministry. Ambassadors will also work with local Lutheran (ELCA) youth groups to provide programming for visits to Carthage and congregational activities.
Better Together Interfaith Movement intends to promote diversity of all faiths, beliefs, religions, and spiritualities, both secular and nonsecular on campus. This is done through dialogue on coexistence and diversity, trying to educate students on all these different faiths. Through this dialogue, we hope to combat inequalities of all kinds.
