The season of Advent is a time of preparation for all Christians. An opportunity to reorder our thoughts, actions, and hearts toward our Lord Jesus Christ. This time of year is especially focused on the Holy Family and their preparation for life with Christ. Just as the Holy Family relied on the gifts of many for their new life with Christ, Bear Catholic relies on your generosity to facilitate an encounter with Christ. Therefore, we invite you to prayerfully consider participating in our Advent Appeal in preparation for the Spring Semester.

“Bear Catholic has improved my college experience by making the Sacraments more accessible to me throughout my busy week and reminding me of the importance of the faith. Bear Catholic has given me a support system that I never thought I could have in college, and I know someone will always be there to help me. Finally, the group has improved my college experience by blessing me with my best friends who share my faith.”

“Bear Catholic strives to have their members, myself included, crave the courage and humility to be able to walk the journey of Christ and to understand our identity within him. I have met many leaders within Bear catholic that have pushed me to strengthen my faith and to really understand what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God. I will be forever thankful for the opportunity given to me by God by bringing this amazing group of people into my life and molding me into a better follower of Christ.”
