Throughout the year, CC@S hosts events to bring Catholic grad students together. Sign up to our mailing list here!
Catholicism 101, our flagship series, is a forum for graduate students and young adults that fosters community and open discussion of relevant issues impacting Catholics while sharing a meal. Join us on Monday nights at 7:00pm at the GCC.
On February 6: "Speaking of Silence: The Film, Faith, History, and Culture" -- Tricia Bolle, lay missionary to Asia, will share her research and experience with the persecution of Japanese Christians and missionaries during the 16th and 17th centuries in Japan, the setting for Martin Scorcese's recently released film Silence. She will offer her reflections about Silence, the Japanese persecution of the Church, and the reality of life as a missionary in Asia, where many unique challenges exist to the spreading of the Gospel.
Further topics for Winter Quarter include:
- Music and Liturgy -- February 13 (Eric)
- Salesian Lay Missioners -- March 6 (Cara)
- Catholic Universities -- March 13 (Brittney)

Meet Our Grad Student Leaders
Claire Baumer, President
Hi all! I'm currently working on my PhD in the Biology Department and have been at Stanford since Fall 2015. I grew up in Belleville, IL right outside St. Louis, MO and came here from my undergrad at the University of Chicago. In my free time, I enjoy baking and reading (especially Jane Austen and Margaret Atwood). Welcome to the Catholic Community at Stanford!
Quinn MacPherson, Vice-President
I’m a grad student studying polymer physics; I grew up and did my undergrad in Idaho. You may have seen me at 10:30am Mass, bible study, Catholicism 101 or one of the many Catholic events on the Stanford Campus. You may have also seen me bicycling around campus (I’m the guy with the big diamond plate aluminum trailer behind his bicycle). Hope to meet you.
Eric, Financial Officer
Hi! I grew up in Queensbury, NY and I did my undergraduate with the East Coast Dominican Friars at Providence College in Rhode Island. I majored in music and biochemistry, and now I am a Ph.D. student in the Earth System Science Department here at Stanford. I love to play the organ and sing in choir, and I really enjoy participating in the choirs here at Stanford and in the Catholic Community. I’m really looking forward to being the Financial Officer for the new graduate student group next year!
Our grad leaders in collaboration with the campus ministry staff plan activities and events to form a vibrant graduate community. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, contact our Campus Minister, Lourdes Alonso (email@example.com).
