Mustard Seed

The Graduate Student and Young Professional Large Group

Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Jesus in the gospel of Matthew

Looking for meaning and purpose in life beyond your graduate studies? Convinced there is more to life than rising to the top of the corporate ladder? There are few things as consuming in a young adult’s life as the rigor of graduate studies or the pressures of a new job. At times your studies or your career can threaten to consume your entire life. St. Paul’s is here to remind you that you are made for more!

At Mustard Seed, graduate students and young professionals gather to build community and grow in friendship. This is accomplished first and foremost by being present to one another; our goal is to create a space for authentic relationships centered on something greater than academic pursuits and career advancement.

Additionally, each week a topic is presented for the consideration of the group and as a launching point for discussion; the purpose of this discussion is to foster social, intellectual, and spiritual growth. We learn from the example of our teachers and grow by exhorting each other to right action.

The goal of Mustard Seed is to cultivate in each of us a fertile soil in which the seed of Faith can grow, so that, having received the good news of the Gospel, we may in turn share it with others, and thus bear fruit that will last.
