For Catholic high school students on their way to college, faith runs the risk of being lost in the shuffle of new roommates, classes, studying, and activities.
Campus ministries are often available to students in college – if they can get connected. One group is doing just that: helping high school students make a smooth faith transition into college by connecting them to their college's Catholic center, even before they arrive.
"We reach out into the Catholic high schools and parishes to identify graduating seniors and where they are going off to college," said Matthew Zerrusen, director and co-founder of The Newman Connection.
"We then get that information and send it to their respective campus minister. The idea is that the campus minister can then reach out to the student even before they arrive on campus," Zerrusen told CNA.
