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 pm in Siebert Chapel.  The student organization meets 2 -3 times a month after mass for fellowship and activities.
