(Editor’s Note: This post highlights one of the many religious centers that can be found on and around campus. You can find a full list here.)
Here at Indiana University-Bloomington, there are a multitude of different ways to worship and practice your beliefs. St. Paul’s Catholic Church offers a home to those brought up in, or joining Catholicism. IU students will reap the benefits offered by this church ranging from numerous mass times throughout the week, confessional hours and approachable clergy and parishioners. And let’s not forget the free-to-student dinners offered after 5:30 pm masses on Sundays.
St. Paul’s not only works to make church exciting and awakening, they work to make everyone feel included and comfortable as well. There are Korean and Spanish masses offered to those of non-American culture, “small group” bible studies that meet once a week to delve deeper into scripture and build spiritual bonds between students, and a variety of different retreats offered throughout the school year. This church is not only a place of worship, but a gathering of community. Here, parishioners grow in the faith along with growing in friendship and understanding of one another. For students interested in learning more about St. Paul’s, check out the church’s website.
