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. A weekly mass, led by priests from the surrounding communities, takes place Sundays at 7:30 p.m. in A. F. Siebert Chapel.  The student organization meets two to three times a month after Mass for fellowship and activities.
