St. Lawrence Center at KU

A Catholic friend is very enthusiastic about the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center at the University of Kansas. She described the recent surge in the numbers of potential vocations to the religious life, stating that the increase is approximately 400 percent over the past five years--from about 15 students to about 60 who are considering a religious vocation. I don't know if the numbers are valid, but if so the figures likely represent a real revival for the Catholic Church among young adults.

I moved to Kansas from Arkansas in August for a job at KU. Being a KU staff member, the St. Lawrence Center is my parish and I love it.

Here is an article from the KU student newspaper about KU students and vocations to the religious life from a couple of weeks ago.
