newman nights

Newman Nights are every Wednesday evening when school is in session, from 7-8:30pm in Lower Chapel.

Join us for lively conversation with friends in the faith! Newman Nights provide faith formative opportunities that seek to inspire ongoing conversion, deepening discipleship, and common mission. Programming is usually discussion driven. At times, it is student led; other times, guest speakers are invited to share about topics that are relevant to Catholic college students.

why newman?

John Henry Cardinal Newman (February 21, 1801 – August 11, 1890) was an important figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century. Originally an evangelical Oxford academic and clergyman in the Church of England, Newman was a leader in the Oxford movement. This influential group of Anglicans wished to return the Church of England to many Catholic beliefs and forms of worship. He left the Anglican church and converted to Roman Catholicism (1845), eventually being granted the title of Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII.

A great number of Newman Communities (or Newman Centers) in Cardinal Newman's honor have been established throughout the world. They provide pastoral services and ministries to Catholics at non-Catholic universities

His beatification was officially proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI on September 19, 2010 during his visit to the United Kingdom.
