From everyone on the Badger Catholic Staff, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Whether this is your first or fifth year here at Madison, we hope that this year will be filled with academic success, fun, and personal growth.
Badger Catholic has many resources available to all students, regardless of faith. We offer peer mentoring, local service opportunities, and we invite nationally renowned speakers to Madison! We also host Alpha Omega on Thursday nights, which has some faith formation, community building, and praise and worship music. Also join us for Vita Pura on Sunday afternoons, where we will discuss environmental stewardship, and for Fides et Ratio on Mondays, where we will discuss Faith and Reason.
No matter where you come from or what you believe, we look forward to meeting you and getting to know you.
See you soon!
ValLimar Jansen on Thursday, September 29 @ 7PM
ValLimar Jansen, a renowned singer, songwriter, and recording artist will be talking about how she has overcome racial adversity through faith. Please join us at 7PM this Thursday, September 29th in room B102 in Van Vleck. See you there!
Badger Catholic Date Night!
Badger Catholic will be holding its annual Date Night on Friday, October 7th!
Gentlemen will get together in groups of three to plan out a fantastic date night for a group of three fantastic ladies. The budget is up to the men. Then, on October 7th, women will form groups of three and bid on a date based on its description alone without knowing the names of the lucky gentlemen that will be escorting them.
This is a fantastic way to meet new people and to help raise money for Badger Catholic Service Trips!
Men, please fill out this form by Wednesday, October 5th with your date description!
Get Involved in your Faith
In order to grow in holiness, it is important to have a living faith. This means going to Mass, studying Scripture, helping others through your love of God, and being a witness to the world. Our peer mentors can team up with you in this process of getting to know Jesus Christ and his Church. Our service team can inspire you to adopt a more Christ-like heart. Our faith talks and worship nights, Alpha Omega, along with other campus-wide guest speakers, can help you to fall in love with God through the praise and greater understanding of His will.
Dear young friends: If we want it to have real meaning and fulfillment, as you want and as you deserve, I say to each one of you, “Put on faith���������, and your life will take on a new flavour, it will have a compass to show you the way; “put on hope” and every one of your days will be enlightened and your horizon will no longer be dark, but luminous; ���put on love”, and your life will be like a house built on rock, your journey will be joyful, because you will find many friends to journey with you.
