OUR PURPOSE & MISSION
The Brown-RISD Catholic Community (BRCC) serves the students of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Our purpose is to offer students opportunities to encounter Jesus Christ and to broaden their appreciation of their Catholic faith. We are a community of faith that strives to know, love, and serve God through divine worship, prayerful study, and charitable action. We are a diverse assembly bound together as a fellowship of believers seeking to communicate the love of God to one another and the broader community.
Being Catholic is more than going to Mass!
We have weekly dinners, retreats, opportunities to serve the wider community. Find out why the Brown-RISD Catholic Community is one of the most vibrant religious communities on campus.
As a campus community, we're committed to learning about the faith we profess.
Whether it's learning the fundamentals of the faith in RCIA, participating in small group Bible studies, or studying the Summa, we're always learning more.
