Denver, Colo., Dec 23, 2019 / 07:00 pm (CNA).- The phenomenon is well-documented. When young Catholics go away to college, a troublingly high percentage of them stop practicing their faith. And many who stop going to Mass in college never return.
Initiatives like FOCUS, and Newman Centers across the country, are all geared toward helping young Catholics stem the tide – to grow as Catholics in college, rather than wither.
Last Easter, three young men in Colorado were part of a different trend. They didn’t leave Catholicism in college. Instead, they became Catholics.
