The Duke Catholic Center is the official Catholic community on the campus of Duke University. A ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh and the Conventual Franciscan Friars, the DCC serves a Catholic student population that is the largest single denomination on campus. Of the 13,300 students at Duke University, about 20% of them are Roman Catholic. The ministries of the Duke Catholic Center serve and support the spiritual development of countless students during critical transitional times in their lives. The Duke Catholic Center fosters the formation of future Catholic leaders and promotes the integration of our spiritual, intellectual, and social lives.
