Women of Mercy

For young women only!

Young women attending Careers for Christ Weekend 2019 are encouraged to attend Women of Mercy, a special event starting 24 hours earlier, on Thursday, October 3, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Come to campus a day sooner for this service and learning opportunity for young women only! 

Participating students will:

  • Serve at the largest homeless shelter in Chicago.
  • Enjoy Bible studies led by CUC theology professors and staff.
  • Have fun with other young women who are current students in CUC's church work programs.
  • Participate in college community activities.
  • Attend beautiful, serene Evening Prayer in the Chapel.
  • Connect with women church workers through discussion about ministry and family from women's perspectives.
  • Stay in a residence hall with a current CUC church work student.

Women in church vocations are very important to us at CUC, and we want to encourage you from the very start. We hope you'll join us in this unique event hosted by young women who are current students in our deaconess and other church work programs.
