We are called to be a living church; a Catholic faith community on fire with the love of Jesus Christ; passionate about what happens to individuals; disturbed by injustice; and impatient for the kingdom of God.
The Newman Center is a campus ministry parish comprised of those affiliated with the academic community and Columbia area residents. We challenge and console each other within a welcoming environment of dynamic worship, fellowship, hospitality and witnessing to Gospel values. We seek to know God’s will through Eucharist, prayer, scripture and teaching. Through the Holy Spirit, we are refreshed and become empowered to minister and to serve.
