I turn to the good folks here at CAF to help me learn more about one of the colleges my dd has been admitted to for next year. She had applied to 6 universities and so far accepted into three. Millikin University (Decatur, IL) is one of those. It has a good program for her intended major and we visited the campus twice.
Our concern is that it is a presbyterian college and we did not see a Catholic church on campus or within walking/biking distance. DD is actively involved in the church here at home and needs to be able to be free to grow spiritually where ever she spends the next four years of her life. We asked our guide and her counselor about catholic mass being available and the answer we got was about the various churches on and around campus having many services she could attend. DD and I looked at each other acknowledging these people were obviously not Catholic based on that answer. ‘Any service’ just doesn’t cut it for us Catholics.
Does anyone here know any Catholics attending Millikin? Are there churches nearby that we just didn’t see? Are the parishes following the magesterium of the church?
Any information would be most appreciated. She will need to make a decision by the end of the month.
