Help build a community of Catholic young adults learning to love and deepen their relationships with Jesus and one another.
You see a lack of young adult community.
You want to be on mission to bring others closer to God.
You’ve discerned that this may be the next step God has for you.
Embracing a regular, sacramental prayer life.
Learning the riches of the Catholic Faith.
Investing in friendships with those in the Chapter.
Orienting ourselves towards the good of the other and seeking to be the face of Christ to those around us.
Devoting ourselves to our Eucharistic Lord and living the teachings of the Catholic Church in word and action.
Recognizing our strengths and weaknesses before God and giving of ourselves to one another both humbly and with appropriate vulnerability.
“They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.”
You model missionary discipleship and encourage others to follow Christ and to embrace a life on mission.
You build intentional relationships with the members of the Chapter both within and outside of the C4C Nights.
You lead C4C Nights by giving the 10-minute teaching, leading discussion groups, building up community life, and fostering radical hospitality.
You develop a team of other faith-filled young adults who serve the Chapter and raise up the next generation of C4C leaders.
“Starting a Chapter of C4C was a response to God’s call to create community out of a personal ache I had for a Christ-centered community. Made painfully aware of this ache during quarantine, I finally responded to the call of the Lord to start a C4C Chapter. Those who were attending also carried that ache within, and we watched how God satisfied that ache by bringing us together in fellowship and Adoration.”
“After attending my 3rd C4C retreat, a few friends and I made the decision to begin a C4C Chapter in Stamford, CT, which I led for several years. There were so many young adults in the area who were in need of this type of a community, where Christ-centered friendships were made and where we grew in our Catholic faith and in relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist. It was a true blessing and a very joyful time in my life!”

Fr. Anthony Smith
Pastor of St. John the Evangelist Parish in Watertown, CT
“In my experience with the Greater Waterbury Chapter, C4C has provided a much-needed opportunity for encounter with those young adults who are ‘on the periphery,’ as Pope Francis writes in The Joy of the Gospel. C4C Greater Waterbury is transforming the lives of our young adults in growing number.”
“C4C has helped to prepare me to live a life of faith and evangelization by continuously challenging me to deepen my understanding of our faith, and as a result increasing my confidence in going out to evangelize to others. I am certainly not an expert on any given topic, but even so, I get excited when I do research for a presentation, because I have the ability and opportunity to be the herald of this knowledge to others, and that is truly a blessing.”
