About TCC

The Tech Catholic Community is almost wholly composed of graduate and undergraduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We are a lively community, filled with youthfullness, curiosity, and the spirit of God's Word.

We are a culturally varied, international community — perhaps more so than any other gathering of people at MIT — reflecting well the reality of Catholicism as a truly world-wide church. Yet, this community finds unity gathered together to hear God's Word and to celebrate the Eucharist.

Mission Statement: The purpose of TCC shall be to nurture and to proclaim the Catholic faith at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It shall foster and develop the spiritual, intellectual, and social interests of students, preparing them for active participation in the life of the Church.

Organizational Structure

In keeping with our mission, TCC ministries are divided into four categories: Prayer, Service, Education, and Community. The head of each ministry is reponsible for finding organizers for each activity or project which falls within their domain, as well as for facilitating collaboration between the various ministries.

The primary governing body of TCC is the Council, which consists of seven members: the Chair, the four Ministry Coordinators, the Undergraduate Member-At-Large (UMAL), and the Graduate Member-At-Large (GMAL).

The Council is supported by the Advisory Board, which consists entirely of MIT faculty and staff, including many alumni of TCC. The Advisory Board provides advice, facilitates contact with MIT and the Archdiocese of Boston, and oversees TCC staff.

TCC is associated with the Archdiocese of Boston. TCC is an ASA-recognized student group at MIT.
