On behalf of the women, men and children that make up the local worshipping community of the Catholic Center, we warmly welcome you!
What exactly is the Catholic Student Center, and what is the Catholic Student Union? What's the difference? Basically, the Catholic Student Center is the building and the Catholic Student Union is an student organization under the University of South Florida.
In addition to the students who are the major focus of our ministry, the Catholic Student Center serves a permanent community consisting of USF faculty, staff, alumni and others in the area who assist in the mission of the Catholic Center. There are about 200 families in this permanent community, and they are the foundation of the Catholic Student Center constituents. They provide consultation and support; serve as role models; and develop, form, and mentor the Catholic students of the University. They are true stewards through the devotion of their time, talent and treasure for the benefit of the Catholic Church. In addition, they are beneficiaries of services that the Catholic Student Center provides, such as sacramental life and pastoral care and religious education.
