This chapter examines the contributions of religious activities at Catholic colleges and universities to the Catholic culture on campuses, specifically liturgical life, service programs, and the demonstration of religious tolerance and inclusion. The chapter also explores a complex of contested topics swirling around the question of who will be the heroic cultural leaders at Catholic colleges and universities when the presence of religious congregations is gone. In particular, it examines whether these new knowledgeable experts and role models will emphasize Catholic culture or congregational connections as they lead the institutions forward. The final section of the chapter addresses the issue and offers reasons for stressing “Catholic” culture rather than “congregational” culture.

Keywords:   Catholic, liturgy, service, tolerance, Newman Centers, heroic exemplars, knowledge experts, congregations
