Welcome to Catholic Hoos!

Catholic Hoos is a home for all students at the University of Virginia. We strive to greet everyone with the person of Jesus Christ, the love of the Father, and the truth of the Catholic Church. We challenge each other to lead by example with charity and joy, that all may know, love, and live in a relationship with Jesus Christ. We offer a variety of opportunities to grow in knowledge, love, and service of God. There are weekly dinners, retreats, service opportunities, faith education, small group Bible studies, and much more!
