    “Christians are called to live the faith not individually, or in isolation, but in community, as a people loved and willed by God”


    The Premier Catholic Student App

    72 D is committed to helping college students experience vibrant communities of faith on campus.  

    College can be a challenging time of transition. It is also a wonderful opportunity to build life-long friendships rooted in Christ. We want you to encounter Christ and your peers during this pivotal part of your journey!

    You have probably heard people say you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Who is shaping you?

    Why 72 D?

    As with every good gift, faith is something that is meant to be shared with others! After appointing the 12 apostles, Christ appointed a second wave of 72 disciples who in turn went out to meet others. We are all called to embody the spirit of the 72 disciples:

    “After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go”
