Welcome to the

College Small Faith Community!

We are a Christ focused undergrad, grad, and young adult community devoted to study, prayer, cookies, board games, and pizza.  Making friends and deepening our faith are our main goals.  We have two groups that meet weekly: one for undergraduates and one for graduate students.  Our meetings are usually centered around studying a Christian text.
We are affiliated with the nearest Catholic Church: St. Philip the Apostle

Student Study

Mondays, 7:30-9pm


Take a break to connect with God's Word and pray with other students who know exactly how hard -yet important!- it was to take this time.  Your breath of fresh air at the beginning of the week!

If this time doesn't work for you, we are setting up additional groups.  You can let us know when would be a good time here: Study Group Survey

The meeting is in the Ministry Building (just north of the church), rm 2.

Join us for a Planetary Science-themed ice cream social! Come to grab a scoop of the martian surface or a chunk of comet ice. Or, just come to hang out, make some new friends, and meet other Caltech catholics! The event is open to undergrads, grads, post-docs, and students at other Pasadena colleges.

We'll be in the LifeTeen Room, which is upstairs in the Ministry Building.  That's the building just north of the church marked on the satellite image above.

Operation Christmas Child

Nov 17th 10:30am

Every year thousands of shoe-boxes with presents and hygiene products are sent to children all over the world so that everyone, everywhere gets to have a little spark of Christmas spirit.  The Singles Serving SFC will be putting together a few of these boxes.  They'll be meeting at 10:30am (after the 9:15am Mass) on the patio at St. Philip Church to carpool over to Target where they'll purchase the toys and candy and socks and toothbrushes that go into these boxes.  A representative from the group will then bring the boxes to a distribution center to be sent to children worldwide.

Mass in Communion

Join other College and YA Catholics at St. Philip's 5pm Mass each Sunday!

For Caltech students, you can meet us to walk over together at 4:45pm on the corner of Holliston and San Pasqual.

For everyone: we'll be sitting in the pews on the left side of the church (facing the altar), across from the front-most confessionals.  (Under the Jesus takes up the cross mosaic.)
