Recent high school grads are looking forward to starting college with a lifetime of opportunities in front of them. There will be many choices that they will make during the next four years and it’s important to stay connected to their faith while they are making those choices.
What better way to help them stay grounded and give them a safe place to meet new friends than through their school’s Newman Center.

Newman Centers are Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic universities throughout the country.  These centers provide pastoral
services and ministries to their Catholic student population. Through the Newman Connection students are connected to their Campus Minister and invited to join Catholic Campus Ministry—this becomes their faith community away from home!

It’s simple to make that connection—the only information that is required is the student’s first and last name and the name of the college or university they will be attending in September. Send this information to Marianne Sheridan, diocesan director for Youth Ministry at This information will be forwarded to the proper Newman Center and your teen will be welcomed in the fall when they arrive at their school.
