"I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them." – Pope Francis
What to Expect
A “C4C Night” is the starting point of this encounter with Jesus and one another. C4C Nights revolve around one hour of fellowship and faith formation and one hour of Eucharistic Adoration.
Have a chance to reflect on the past week and to share a moment when you saw God’s presence in your life.
Receive from another young adult a short presentation based on the teachings of the Catholic Church and his or her personal journey of faith.
Small Group Breakout
Engage in small group conversations, where you have the opportunity to discuss the night’s teaching and explore how it relates to your own experiences.
The second part of a C4C Night is Eucharistic Adoration. During this time, we meet Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. We can pray to Him, hear His voice, and rest in His Presence.
As Catholics, we believe that Jesus is mysteriously yet truly present – body, blood, soul, and divinity – in the Eucharist. Adoration is a privileged opportunity for us to be close to Jesus, to grow in our relationship with Him, and to meditate on what was shared earlier in the night.
This hour includes silence and time for personal reflection and occasionally includes praise and worship music or other forms of prayer.

“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.”
Join a C4C night.
Reach out to the leader of a chapter near you.
“C4C meant a community of people, coming from different paths, but walking with you in the same direction, in the same journey. That is what makes me excited about C4C.”
“Young adults are at such a pivotal stage in their life and, in Crossroads 4 Christ, they find a pivotal ministry to accompany them. In an age of isolation, I’ve seen C4C bring young people together into a community through their regular meetings and activities, not simply to hang out, but with intentionality in helping form them as disciples of Jesus Christ.”
“After more than 5 years of being part of C4C in different chapters and with different roles, I can’t stop praising God for this gift in my life. I found in every person I encountered and at every meeting a sense of community in Christ that I had never experienced before.”
