Music Ministry

With the addition of Director of Music Andrew Witchger P’15 in 2013, the Duke Catholic Center’s music ministry has exploded. Currently there are over 80 students involved in the DCC music ministry. This team provides beautiful music to the DCC’s liturgies, including during Wednesday night Eucharistic adoration and the three DCC Masses on Sunday.

A New Music RooM will establish a dedicated space for the Music Director’s office, permanent rehearsal space for the music ministry, a charging station for the iPads the music ministry uses each week in lieu of printed sheet music, work space for music ministry interns, and storage space for the instruments.

Naming Opportunity for the Music Room: $500,000

What is the

Falcone-Arena House?

Purchased for the Duke Catholic Center (DCC) in 2005, the Falcone-Arena House (FAH) has served Catholic Students at Duke for over a decade. Situated across the street from Duke’s East Campus and a short walk from the East Campus bus stop, the house is conveniently located and has become a spiritual home-away-from-home for Catholic students. Many Catholic Duke Students rely on the building as a gathering space for

fellowship, worship, and spiritual growth.


As the Duke Catholic Center has grown, so has its space and facility needs. In the last 15 years, the Duke Catholic Center has added 5 members to its staff, all while student participation

in Catholic faith activities has surged. More than ever, Duke students need a welcoming place on campus that is a refuge

from the stress and demands of everyday life.


In this renovation and addition, we envision transforming the FAH to a place where students can come to study, pray, relax, and be at peace. We hope to renovate the ground and first floor

of the building as well as create an addition to the house for expanded facilities. There are various naming and gift opportunities as we undertake this endeavor. When you make

a gift to the Duke Catholic Center to provide support for this project or to name a space, you become a key part of our

Fellowship, Discipleship, and Small Groups

One of the most effective forms of ministry on a college campus is peer evangelization. That is why the Duke Catholic Center has invested heavily in discipleship training for its student leaders, so they can learn to talk to their peers about their faith in everyday conversations and through small groups. Ultimately, it is Catholic students inviting and encouraging each other in their faith that allows them all to grow closer to Jesus.

A New LouNge on the ground floor will provide space for student fellowship and meeting space for small groups.

Naming Opportunity for the Lounge: $250,000

An expaNded deck on the first floor will create additional fellowship and space for large DCC gatherings, such as Feast off East for freshman families, Tuesday Night Dinner, as well as a nice outside space for students to casually come together.

Prayer and Worship

When the FAH was originally renovated in 2005, a small 20-person Chapel was created out of one of the living rooms in the original house. This small Chapel has served the Catholic community well for many years for Daily Mass, baptisms, and student prayer. As the DCC has grown, it has outgrown this small Chapel. Currently the majority of the activities that take place in the Chapel are standing room only. The reconfiguration of the first floor will expand the new chapel to fit over 40 people to accommodate the growth and allow the space to be used for more worship activities throughout the year.

In addition to an expanded Chapel, the DCC will also create an

outside gRotto honoring Our Lady. This grotto will serve as a quiet meditative space for students to pray and decompress in nature.

Naming Opportunity for the Grotto: $100,000

Fulfilling Duke’s Motto

Eruditio et Religio

Most Duke students spend the majority of their time going to class or studying. When you visit the FAH, you will often find students spread out across the house studying wherever they can find an empty place. Especially during midterms and finals, students will set up card tables and foldable chairs all over the house, even in the hallways.

A New study will create a dedicated space for Catholic students to study. The study will be a magnet for students and encourage them to visit the FAH regularly and engage our ministry through their studies.

Naming Opportunity for the Study: $500,000


The Duke Catholic Center wants to be available to all students, no matter their physical ability or disability. The addition of an eLevatoR to the building will make the FAH accessible to all students so all can participate and benefit from the spiritual activities taking place inside the building.

Gift Opportunity: $50,000

Additional Offices

When the FAH was renovated in 2005, only one office was created. Since then, the DCC has added an additional 5 staff members and has commandeered common space at the FAH away from students in order to create staff offices. Two dedicated staff offices will be created to accommodate growth so that common space can be reclaimed for student activities.

Naming Opportunity for Offices: $100,000 (2)

Building for the Future

Currently it takes $500,000 a year to operate the Falcone-Arena House. It is estimated that it will take an additional $10,000 to operate the house with the renovations and addition. A BuiLdiNg eNdowMeNt will help cover the costs of ongoing building operations and maintenance in perpetuity so there will always be a place on campus students can call “home.”

Naming Opportunity for a Building Endowment: $300,000

Impact the Life of a Catholic Duke Student!

The FAH can meet the various needs of the busy Catholic student. On any given day, a student might come to the FAH for music rehearsal or small group, then stay at the house to have dinner and catch up with his Catholic friends. Then he might opt to stick around for last minute studying for his midterm in the new FAH study. Finally, before heading back to his dorm, he might take a short break in the Chapel to decompress and pray. We aim to provide a space on campus where students can truly be what God has called them to be: Catholic students at Duke University. We hope you will prayerfully consider a gift to support these efforts!
