COMMUNITY

The 3 Pillars of the JP2 Commons are community, friendship, and mission.

Community: The JP2 Commons strives to foster authentic community among all students who cross our threshold.  Social events: barbecues, dinners, movie nights, sports watch parties, and perhaps even a dance or two in our incredible outdoor courtyard space.

Friendship: The JP2 Commons is committed to providing students with opportunities to grow in authentic friendship. In the first place, this means a friendship with Jesus Christ, followed by Christ-rooted friendships with others.

Mission: The Great Commission of Jesus Christ, to “go and make disciples of all nations,” is at the heart of the JP2 Commons. We seek to form students to be bold and passionate about spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world. There are formation opportunities to learn about the Catholic faith, mission trips, and retreats.

THURSDAY EVENTS:

MASS: Thursdays at 5:30 pm (free meal offered afterwards)

CONFESSION: Offered 30 minutes prior to Mass within the office- beginning at 5 pm on Thursdays.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION: Our small chapel has the Blessed Sacrament reserved in the tabernacle for private prayer at any time. A goal for the near future is to develop and sustain perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in this space. We will offer Eucharistic Adoration on Thursdays from 2:00 - 5:30 pm.
