The CaSA Board for the 2023-2024 academic year. The students are standing against a colorful wall that says "Alive in the love of Jesus." There are six diverse students smiling and looking into the camera.

You Belong Here

The Catholic Students Association is the relationship between Roman Catholic students and friends and the Sheil Catholic Center at Northwestern University. CaSA is the first line of outreach and hospitality to Catholic students, fosters communication between Catholic students and the Sheil Catholic Center, and, with the Center, provides opportunities for prayer, fellowship, formation, and service. CaSA aids the director/chaplain of Sheil and the Sheil Leadership Council in their efforts to create a more unified community of faith.

Get Connected

CaSA meets most Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. during the academic year at Sheil Catholic Center, Evanston. Please see the list of our meetings and events below. We invite all undergrads to join us. Newcomers are always welcome! Email CaSA here to be added to the listserv to get notice of meetings.
