Augie Catholic is a student group of Augustana College in Rock Island, IL. It is the center of Catholic Ministry on campus serving the needs of the many Catholic students who have made Augustana their excellent home.
Our specific mission is to offer opportunities on campus to deepen one’s relationship with Jesus Christ within the communion of the Church.
Opportunities offered help us to grow spiritually through the offering of the Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and Eucharistic Adoration.
Other opportunities help us to grow intellectually by reflecting on the teachings of Christ handed down to us in Scripture and the Tradition of the Church.
Finally, opportunities are offered for us to deepen our relationship with one another through social events and for us to go out into the community to serve others.
The Catholic community at Augustana is extremely grateful to the college and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) for the partnership nurtured over the years so that Catholics have a spiritual home on campus. It is a real gift to work together with the vibrant Campus Ministry at Augie with the full support of President Steven Bahls.
