Spiritual Formation


Campus Ministry retreats offer students a chance to grow spiritually while spending a relaxing weekend with a wonderful community.  The student-led Awakenings Retreat occurs once each semester for an extended weekend of prayer and fellowship.  The Freshmen Overnight Retreat and Busy Person’s Retreats offer shorter overnight, evening, or daytime retreats to fit the needs and schedules of busy students.  Check the Campus Ministry Upcoming Events page for open retreat registrations.

Vocation Discernment Groups

8 p.m. Mass Planning Team

The weekly Sunday liturgy allows Catholics to experience the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith.  As such, the 8 p.m. Mass Planning Team, comprised of Newman staff and students, seeks to develop a comprehensive message giving the congregation the tools to spread the Gospel on campus.

Scripture & Theology Courses

Living the faith necessarily means growing in knowledge the faith.  As such, the St. Thomas More Newman Center is committed to providing opportunities to dive into topics like marriage, morality, church history, drinking and the college culture, sacraments, Catholic social thought, Pauline literature, and more.  Some topics are covered in one-night events while others are held in a 4-6 week class format.  For upcoming events, check the bulletin or calendar or email campus.ministry@comonewman.org.
