KNOWING, LOVING, & SERVING THE POOR

OUR MISSION

Christ in the City is a Catholic program dedicated both to forming young adults, volunteers, and the greater community to be lifelong missionaries and to knowing, loving, and serving the poor.

  • “At Christ in the City, 
    He gave me new eyes to see and a new heart to love Him, first in the Eucharist and then in His disguise of the poor.”

    – Anna Rose, Year of Service Alumna

  • “My summer at CIC taught me two things which changed my life: how to love and how to be loved.”

    -Donald, Summer of Service Alumnus

  • “I’ve never felt more at home in a room full of strangers than when I visited Christ in the City.”

    – Brandon, Mission Trip Participant

  • “The Gospel came alive for us as we entered into friendship with the homeless, we experienced the joy only Love can bring.”

    – Fr. Benjamin, Diocese of Lincoln, NE
