Where we are
For more than 50 years, Newman priests and chaplains have supported Catholic students and the entire University community, providing spiritual, emotional, and practical counsel to those in need.
By engaging in prayer, attending mass, participating in Kairos retreats, and celebrating the sacraments, our students become authentic witnesses of Christian life.
Inspirational programs, retreats, and volunteer opportunities such as Alternative Spring Break help our students grow personally, spiritually, and socially while developing valuable leadership skills.
Through lectures, interfaith dialogue, and study, students enhance their understanding of the Catholic tradition. They gain greater self-awareness and the ability to firmly articulate their faith.
