ENCOUNTER is the DCC’s immersive service and social justice program that involves service opportunities, educational programming, and advocacy. This call to encounter God in service of others is central to our life of discipleship, so our programming is open to all students

Each semester we will dig deep into a theme, exploring how our Catholic faith calls us to make a difference in the world. We will partner with local nonprofits in Durham to serve our community, take the time to educate ourselves about areas of injustice, and find concrete ways that we can better love our neighbors.

Read more about our themes for each semester:

Fall 2022: Dignity

Spring 2022: Family

Fall 2021: Food
