OLR Catholic Student Residence Application 2016-2017
We are looking for students who desire to share their Catholic faith with others, live in community and grow in holiness. The Our Lady of Reconciliation Catholic Student Residence is a project of the Christian Life Movement Canada, in partnership with the Brock University Catholic Chaplaincy, that provides Catholic students with a year-long experience of faith formation, community life and leadership training. The goal of the OLR Catholic Student Residence is to enrich Catholic young adults with the knowledge and experience needed to assist them in their faith journey, to help them discern and live their vocations to their fullest and to provide the Church with vibrant leaders to live and proclaim the Gospel. If you are interested in bringing Christ to our Campus, please check out the OLR Catholic Residence page on our website (http://brockcatholic.weebly.com/olr-catholic-residence.html) or drop by the Chaplaincy office and speak with Amanda.
For those interested in getting involved with the men's and women's formation groups the times have been determined. The men and women will meet Fridays at 5pm. If anybody has questions please contact Brendon Orian (men) or Kailey Meehan (women). We will be gathering in the lounge in Decew Residence, Room 216 and 217.
