Join us in “The Search” this Lent

Are you looking to renew your faith this Lent? Would you like to be part of a group of other Christians and fellow seekers exploring the deeper meaning of life?

The Search is an innovative video-based journey that tackles the key questions of every human heart. In seven beautifully filmed episodes, experts from the fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.

Interested? We’ll explore a new video each week and gather (virtually) on Friday afternoons for discussion. Here’s how to participate in three easy steps.

Step One: Sign Up

Any college student from Western Carolina University is welcome – whether or not you are Catholic, consider yourself Christian or are simply seeking for more meaning in life. Sign up to receive instructions in your email on how to access each week’s video and how to join in our online discussion. It’s free!

Step Two: Watch

Watch each week’s video on your own time (allow about 30 minutes) prior to the Friday discussion.

Step Three: Discuss

On Friday afternoons at 4:00 pm join us in the virtual “Living Room” on our Discord Server for a group discussion that will last about 45 minutes.


There are seven videos in the series. We will meet Fridays during Lent (except for Good Friday) and once after Easter for a total of seven times during the spring semester. Since we are meeting online, students can participate whether they are on campus or at home.
