Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Florida, known as Catholic Gators, serves hundreds of students by providing a strong Catholic community for college students who are seeking faith, formation, and fellowship. Catholic Gators engages students by offering bible studies, weekly dinners, student Masses, retreats, and various ministries for students to get involved in. Catholic Gators has a staff consisting of several campus ministers and a team of FOCUS missionaries who work to guide students on their faith journey.
