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
