“I found C4C at a somewhat desperate hour in my life. I felt stuck—riddled by discouragement, isolation and depression after returning home from a faith-filled college experience. It all began with a simple invitation after Mass one day—and it literally changed the course of my life. Not only did I discover a group of amazing people my own age; I found a community that helped transform my faith from mere intellectual allegiance to a heartfelt and joyful relationship. As I continued to commit to the weekly C4C night and holy hours, our Eucharistic Lord overflowed my life with friends, brothers, amazing housemates, my future spouse and eventually, the opportunity to become a Servant Leader and to share those blessings with a new community.”
“After experiencing a reversion back to my faith and moving home to Connecticut after living in Boston for five years, I was looking for a young adult community that would provide me fellowship and formation in this uncertain, early stage of getting back into my faith. I saw that there was a C4C group that met in New Haven and I started attending regularly. They organized a community service day with the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, which I attended, and ultimately had the beautiful opportunity to discern religious life with them for a year as a pre-postulant. C4C helped me to deepen my relationship with the Lord, grow in my understanding and love of Church teaching, explore my vocation, and provide a needed, fun and faithful community.”
