What is John 15?
John 15 is a NEW community at St. Mary's Catholic Center, designed specifically for freshmen. If you're looking for a way to get "plugged in" to the faith community at St. Mary's but don't know where to start, you're looking in the right place! Freshman year can be quite the adventure for college students, which makes it so important to stay grounded in you Faith and look for opportunities to grow in your relationship with Christ. This is what John 15 is all about--forming an intentional community for students to journey through their freshmen year together, with the support of upperclassmen.
John, Chapter 15
So why do we call it John 15? Christ gave us a mind-blowing spiritual gift through His Gospels, and the Gospel of John is jam-packed full of insight into what it means to be a disciple of Christ. John 15 will be centered around and grounded in these lessons. Throughout the year we will be journeying through the 15th chapter of John's gospel, which focuses on the importance of staying rooted in Christ and remaining in Him. By taking these lessons from John and applying them to your freshmen year and college faith life, you'll be setting up a rock-solid foundation to build off of the next four years and beyond. Jump-starting your Faith journey in a fun and welcoming community is what John 15 is all about.
What we have planned
John 15 is all about helping you grow in your Faith, and that's done best in a fun, exciting community! As a freshman, you'll be a part of a "family", consisting of a few of your fellow freshmen and a sophomore "mom" and "dad." You'll journey through your freshmen year with this family, growing closer to God and each other. Within the John 15 community as a whole--all of the families together--you'll get to meet the rest of your fellow freshmen and develop a sense of fellowship with the Aggie Catholic Class of 2019. How, you ask? Well, so much is in store for you guys, from weekly hangouts and game nights to football games and service opportunities. WHOOP!
