Welcome to CUSA!

What is CUSA?

CUSA is a Christian support group that enables people with chronic illnesses or disabilities to support and care for each other and mutually enrich their spiritual and social lives.

If you are looking for someone with whom you can share your thoughts, someone in whom you can find support, someone with whom you can share your faith, we invite you to  join CUSA. Members provide each other with comfort and companionship and explore together the spirituality that underlies Jesus’  challenge, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.”

CUSANs, as we call ourselves, support one another through prayer and correspondence. We forge a special relationship with God and among ourselves. Our unity is born of a common state of life and a common faith. Our bond goes beyond that of fraternal organizations or social clubs, for it is forged by the redemptive suffering of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our organization is based on the words of St. Paul who wrote,  “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake.” (Colossians 1:24) It is not easy to rejoice in suffering or to endure chronic illness or disability day after day. To help with both, CUSA provides a way for members to encourage, care for, and listen to one another. Please accept our invitation to  get to know us and how we have found God in the seemingly “dark corners” of life with illness or disability.
