Catholic Athletes for Christ (CAC)

Catholic Athletes for Christ (CAC) is a national organization with the mission to serve Catholic athletes and share the Gospel in and through athletics.  In 2008, the first college chapter of CAC began at the Catholic University of America as a ministry to athletes on campus. In its ninth year now, the CAC chapter on campus seeks to meet the spiritual needs of athletes through weekly meetings, an annual retreat, and by providing representatives that serve as resources to teams and coaches. 

Weekly Meetings, Fall 2016

  • Mondays, 8-9 PM in Opus Hall
  • Open to all CUA athletes in NCAA, Intramural, and Club sports


Athletes' Retreat: November 18-20, 2016

The annual Athlete's Retreat, sponsored by CAC, is open to all CUA athletes in NCAA, Intramural and Club sports.  The retreat is held at Camp Letts in Edgewater, MD and features talks by four NCAA athletes, discussion, time for prayer, and, of course, competition.  Some photos from last year's retreat weekend can be seen below.
