I had no idea what I was in for...

When I was a freshman coming to A&M in the fall of 2006, I had heard that St. Mary’s was great and that I would enjoy going there. My friend who was a sophomore invited me to go on Connect because it would be fun and great way to meet people. I said yes. I had done retreats before, and I did the church thing in high school. But I had no idea what I was in for.

Connect introduced me to a way of being Catholic that I didn’t think was possible! It exploded all of my preconceived ideas about how a person could be Catholic in college and still enjoy college. I met so many people who were living their Catholic faith in a way that was joyful, and I realized that is what I wanted. That is why we go to church: to live a life that is transformed by the love of Jesus Christ. All it took was me seeing that it was possible.

So, I invite you to come on Connect. Come and see a way of life that is radical and exciting, a way of life that you might not think is possible, a way of life that you were made for! Trust me, you have no idea what you are in for…
