Graduate Students and Young Professionals
Welcome to Saint Paul’s Catholic Student Center!
The Grad/YP community here at St. Paul’s provides opportunities for community, service, and prayer for graduate students and young professionals in Madison. We have a lot of different ways to get involved, get started by registering with us here and join our Facebook Group. In addition, feel free to email our Chaplain, Fr. Gabriel López-Betanzos, or our Grad/YP intern Rosie Young with any questions!
Mustard Seed is our weekly Grad/YP community event! It begins at 7:00pm in Saint Paul’s Library and is a great opportunity for fellowship and growing in the faith. There are speakers, great conversations, snacks, and lots of fun! Check out the event page to look at the calendar and see more details!
