"For me, Christian faith has always been a communitarian reality.  I do not think I would have had the strength to persevere in my vocation or my Catholic studies without the help of others.  CDU provides a very special community where, even without seeing one another or talking to one another personally, I have felt we know one another and have become a real family of faith."
