Was Jesus Political? Reflections in an Election Year

Newman Nights
Thursday, October 6, 7:30pm–9:00pm in the CIRCLE Common Room, 3rd floor of Old Union
Many Americans tend to critique their religion by their politics—which seems backwards! Just how political or a-political was Jesus? What enduring challenges does he make? Fr. Xavier’s lecture will explore the question in the light of 1st century Jewish culture. Come let us explore the scriptures together. We will provide time for group discussions.

Bring your Bible! And we will provide refreshments!

Newman Nights is a series of occasional presentations on topics drawn from the full breadth and depth of Catholic theology. This program is designed to be of interest to, and contribute to the ongoing faith formation of, all members of our community.


Mass of the Holy Spirit

Sunday, October 9 at all Masses
At 4:30 Mass in Memorial Church, we welcome Bishop Patrick McGrath of the Diocese of San Jose as our presider. We will serve a light supper immediately following this Mass.

In keeping with a long tradition of many universities, Catholic Community at Stanford celebrates the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the start of each academic year. During the liturgy we ask for the inspiration, guidance, and presence of God's Spirit on all of our activities. We gather together as an entire community to rededicate ourselves to our shared mission and to welcome new members.

Are You New? Welcome to CC@S!

Thank you for stopping by! Whether you're just visiting us or are looking for a new parish home, are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church or are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith, we're happy you're here!

We are both parish and campus ministry serving Stanford students, faculty, and staff as well as the many non-students who have chosen to make CC@S their home. We are served by the Dominican Order, and are called to share the love of Christ through study, prayer, community, and service. We want to develop and form well-educated, passionate, and faithful Catholic leaders who live out the love of Christ.


If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
~ Phillipians 1:1-2
