Campus Ministry FAQs

Is campus ministry exclusively for Catholics?

No. Campus Ministry at Newman University strives to support all students in their continual spiritual development while respecting individual faith backgrounds. We seek to reach all students through effective programming, individualized attention, and community sharing.

I am not Catholic. How do I become involved in campus ministry?

There are so many great ways to get involved, but one of the best is to join one of our student led weekly bible studies. To find out when and where the bible studies are offered, stop by the office, Sacred Heart 219.  Campus Ministry offers fellowship events throughout the year that are open to everyone such as the Annual Scavenger Hunt, the Winter Service Retreat, trips to the baseball games, and many more.   

When is Mass? How do I get involved with Mass?

Mass is offered Monday-Friday at 12:05pm in St. John's Chapel and Sundays at 7:00pm.  All Masses are student led and open to the public.  If you would like to be an altar server, lector, extraordinary minister of Holy Communion, or musician, please stop by the office, Sacred Heart 219.

Do I have to be Catholic to receive the Eucharist at Mass?

Yes, however, non-Catholics can come forward for a blessing from the priest.

Is there a way to find out if Mass is not being offered?

Since the Mass schedule follows the academic calendar, there are times Mass is not offered in St. John's Chapel. To find out when there are changes, please visit https://newmanu.edu/campus-life/campus-ministry or contact Campus Ministry to be added to the email list.
